... Remnants of Hurricane Odile poses serious flash flood concerns...

Moisture has been increasing slowly over New Mexico... leading to
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms today. A few strong
storms this evening could lead to locally heavy downpours and some
flooding. Into Tuesday the moisture is expected to increase more
over southwestern and south central New Mexico. A Flash Flood Watch
has been issued for portions of southwestern New Mexico on Tuesday
to account for potentially slow-moving storms and locally heavy
rain.

Powerful Hurricane Odile is currently spinning over the Gulf of
California... and it is forecast to track north to northeast through
Tuesday. The storm will weaken considerably... but will still turn
into southeastern Arizona Wednesday and then over New Mexico
Thursday. While Odile will lose its hurricane status by the time it
arrives in the land of enchantment... there is expected to be plenty
of deep tropical moisture associated with it.

While the bulk of the heavy rainfall is again expected over the
southwestern and south central mountains of New Mexico on
Wednesday... rain chances will quickly rise and become more widespread
by Thursday and Thursday night. Some of this rain will be heavy...
creating concerns for flash flooding... especially in central to
western New Mexico.

Forecasting hurricanes and their remnants is extremely challenging...
and some uncertainty still exists in the forecast. Northern and
central New Mexico residents... along with those planning travel or
outdoor activities in the area... should stay up to date with current
forecasts and statements. Forecasts are updated at least twice
daily at weather.Gov/abq. You can also tune in to NOAA Weather Radio
or stay informed with your preferred broadcast... print... or internet
weather information source.
