Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:13 AM MDT on September 16, 2014

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on September 18, 2014


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

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* portions of New Mexico and Texas... including the following
areas... in New Mexico... Otero County. In Texas... El Paso and
Hudspeth counties.

* Through Wednesday evening.

* Even though Hurricane Odile is still well south of the area...
moisture associated with the system is quickly spreading north
and will move into the area throughout today. This moisture will
help create numerous showers and embedded thunderstorms across
the region through at least Wednesday night and likely through
much of Thursday. The threat for heavy rains may lesson by
Wednesday evening... but could increase again for Thursday as
the actual remnants of Odile move across the area.

* Normally dry arroyos and streams could be quickly filled with
fast moving water... mud and debris. Low water crossing
roadways could become impassable. People living in flood prone
areas should be prepared to take action if rising water is
seen.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
