... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 6 PM MDT this evening through
late tonight...

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: east slopes Sangre de
Cristo Mountains, northern Sangre de Cristos above 9500 feet
including Red River and southern Sangre de Cristos above 9500
feet.

* From 6 PM MDT this evening through late tonight

* 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 Ute Park, and sardinas 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.
