.DISCUSSION...
A Flash Flood Watch has been posted for mainly west of t he
Continental Divide and in the Sacramento Mountains for Saturday
Afternoon into Sunday Morning. A very moist and unstable airmass
with some minor disturbances aloft will persist today and Sunday,
leading to widespread showers and thunderstorms. Some of these
storms will produce heavy rain and some flooding, Moisture will
decrease some  Monday and Tuesday with slightly less thunderstorm
coverage. There will be a reduced risk for some heavy rain and
flooding. Wednesday and Thursday, high pressure aloft will slide
over much of New Mexico, reducing the coverage and intensity of
the showers and thunderstorms, and bringing slightly warmer
daytime temperatures. Min RH values for Saturday and Sunday will
run around 35% to 45% lowlands and 50% to 50% mountains.
