... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of north and central New Mexico, including the
following areas: south central mountains, Southwest Mountains and
west central mountains.

* Through this evening

* scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected this afternoon
and will continue through this evening. Rainfall rates of 1 to 2
inches per hour can be expected along with slow storm motion.
This is a particular concern on recent wildfire burn scars, where
moderate to heavy rain will lead to flash flooding with the
potential for dangerous debris flows and mud slides. Other areas
that have recently received heavy rainfall will also be at a
greater risk of flash flooding.

* The Diener Canyon, Bluewater, and buzzard burn scars will be
particularly vulnerable to moderate to heavy rain, which could
result in dangerous flash flooding. Keep a watchful eye on
arroyos, creeks, small streams and low lying areas, and stay out
of flooded low water crossings. While main Stem river flooding is
not expected, rapid rises on area rivers, creeks and streams are
possible.

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.
