New Mexico, Northern Sangre de Cristos above 9500 feet/Red River

Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 10:24 AM MDT on July 29, 2014

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on July 29, 2014


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 9 PM MDT this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of north and central New Mexico... including the
following areas... Central Highlands... De Baca County... east
slopes Sangre de Cristo Mountains... eastern Lincoln County...
eastern San Miguel County... far northeast Highlands... Guadalupe
County... Harding County... Jemez Mountains... northeast Highlands...
northern Sangre de Cristo Mountains above 9500 feet/Red River...
Quay County... Raton ridge/Johnson Mesa... San Juan Mountains...
south central mountains... southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains
above 9500 feet... Union County... upper Rio Grande Valley and west
slopes Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

* Until 9 PM MDT this evening

* an upper level disturbance will slowly move eastward across
central and northern New Mexico triggering showers and
thunderstorms over much of the area. Weak steering flow aloft
combined with a very moist airmass in place... will result in slow
moving thunderstorms that will be capable of producing very heavy
rain and flash flooding.

* Locations where the ground is already saturated from recent
rainfall will be favored for flash flooding. Other vulnerable
locations will include steep terrain... urban areas and burn
scars. Keep a watchful eye on arroyos and small streams... and
stay out of flooded low water crossings. Monitor the latest
forecasts closely and be prepared to take immediate action if a
warning or advisory is issued.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash
flood warnings be issued.
