This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of north and central
New Mexico.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The potential exists for flash flooding to develop across portions of
the eastern plains today into early Sunday morning as a deep stream
of subtropical moisture persists over the area causing heavy rain to
intensify and become more widespread. By Sunday the ground will
probably be saturated in many areas producing a greater sensitivity
to flash flooding in counties along New Mexico`s eastern border,
where periods of heavy rain may continue into Sunday evening. By
Sunday evening 1 to 3 inch rain amounts will be common across the
eastern plains, with locally near 5 inches across east central and
northeast areas. There will also be a marginal risk of strong to
severe thunderstorms again across eastern areas Saturday afternoon
and evening, and in counties along the Texas border on Sunday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

No hazardous weather is expected at this time. However, weather can
change very rapidly. Always use the latest forecasts, watches and
warning for planning purposes.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
