Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:54 PM MDT on September 16, 2014

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on September 18, 2014


... Flash Flood Watch in effect through Wednesday evening...

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include a portion of north and central New
Mexico... including the following areas... eastern Lincoln County...
south Central Highlands... south central mountains... southwest
Chaves County and upper Tularosa Valley.

* Through Wednesday evening

* tropical moisture will continue to increase over southern New
Mexico tonight and into Wednesday. This will lead to periods of
widespread rain with embedded thunderstorms over Lincoln and far
southwest Chaves counties. These areas were already impacted
with rain from last night and this morning... and additional
rainfall over these saturated areas will lead to a significant
flash flooding threat.

* The flash flooding threat will be especially high downstream of
the Little Bear and white burn scars in Lincoln County. Abrupt
flows of water... ash... and debris could develop after heavy
downpours impact the area. Residents and travelers through the
watch area should remain alert as flash flood warnings may be
issued later on today.

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.
