THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST NEW
MEXICO...SOUTHWEST TEXAS AND WEST TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BECOME MORE ISOLATED TODAY AND
MAINLY AFFECT SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO AND THE UPPER TRANS PECOS...
HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE WITH ANY STORM THAT FORMS. A FLASH
FLOOD WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR THE GUADALUPE MOUNTAINS AND EDDY
COUNTY PLAINS. ABUNDANT RAINFALL HAS ALREADY FALLEN IN THESE AREAS
OVER THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS...SO IT WILL NOT TAKE MUCH ADDITIONAL
RAINFALL TO RAISE CONCERNS FOR MORE FLOODING AND FLASH FLOODING.

ELEVATED FLOWS WILL CONTINUE ALONG THE RIO GRANDE TODAY AND
TONIGHT DUE TO RELEASES FROM RESERVOIRS IN MEXICO AND HEAVY
RAINFALL ON BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER. TRIBUTARIES AND ARROYOS TO
THE PECOS RIVER... SUCH AS THE RIO PENASCO...FOUR MILE
DRAW...SOUTH SEVEN RIVERS...ROCKY ARROYO...DARK CANYON...BLACK
RIVER...DELAWARE RIVER...AND WALNUT CANYON HAVE BEEN FLUCTUATING
AS FLOOD WAVES MOVE DOWN CANYONS. ANY ADDITIONAL RAIN THAT FALLS
IN THOSE AREAS WILL CAUSE ADDITIONAL RISES...IF NOT FLOODING. ALSO
LINGERING FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS IN BORDEN AND SCURRY
COUNTIES IS STILL A CONCERN. FINALLY FLOODING ALONG THE PECOS
RIVER FROM RED BLUFF TO PECOS/BARSTOW IS STILL ONGOING AS IS MINOR
FLOODING ON THE COLORADO RIVER AT COLORADO CITY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS REMAINS IN THE
FORECAST WEDNESDAY.

THE RIO GRANDE...PECOS RIVER...AND ASSOCIATED TRIBUTARIES AND
ARROYOS WILL REMAIN ELEVATED DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS DUE TO
ADDITIONAL RAINFALL. THE PECOS RIVER FROM RED BLUFF TO PECOS IS
NOT EXPECTED TO CREST UNTIL LATER THIS WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

ALTHOUGH SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED...LOCAL EMERGENCY
MANAGEMENT SHOULD STAY UP TO DATE ON THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN
FLASH FLOODING OR RIVER FLOODING OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
