...FLASH FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 AM MDT SUNDAY...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of north and central New Mexico, including the
  following areas: San Francisco River Valley and Southwest
  Mountains.

* until 4 AM MDT Sunday

* Abundant moisture in place over the area and weak flow aloft will
  set the stage for slow-moving thunderstorms with heavy rainfall.
  The greatest potential for flash flooding will occur over steep
  terrain, areas that have seen wildfires in recent years, and
  flood prone areas across lower elevations. A quick 1 to 1.5
  inches of rainfall is likely from the stronger storms, with
  locally higher amounts possible where storms repeatedly impact
  the same area.

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.
