The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a

  East central San Miguel County in northeastern New Mexico...
  Eastern Harding County in northeastern New Mexico...
  Central Quay County in east central New Mexico...
  Central Union County in northeastern New Mexico...

* Until 315 PM MDT.

* At 118 PM MDT, Doppler radar indicated very heavy rain due to a
  line of thunderstorms moving northeast across the East Central and
  Northeast Plains of New Mexico.  These storms will produce between
  one and two inches of rain, causing arroyo and small stream
  flooding in the advisory area.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Quay, Tucumcari, Logan, Bueyeros, Ragland, Ute Lake State Park,
  Wheatland, Forrest and Rosebud.


In hilly terrain there are numerous low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too
great to allow your car to cross safely.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
