.NOW...
AT 7 AM MDT...RADAR IS SHOWING SHOWERS AND WEAK STORMS BEGINNING
TO MOVE OVER EL PASO COUNTY AND WESTERN HUDSPETH COUNTY OF FAR
WEST TEXAS. THESE SHOWERS WILL PRODUCE MODERATE RAINFALL AS THEY
TRACK FROM SOUTH TO NORTH ACROSS THESE COUNTIES INTO SOUTH
CENTRAL NEW MEXICO. WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAIN IS NOT LIKELY OVER MOST
LOCATIONS WITH MOST LOCATIONS AVERAGING ONE-QUARTER TO ONE-HALF
INCH OF RAIN WITH THESE SHOWERS. HOWEVER SOME LOCAL SPOTS MAY SEE
UP TO ONE INCH OF RAIN. FLASH FLOODING POTENTIAL IS ELEVATED DUE
TO RECENT HEAVY RAIN ACROSS THIS AREA...AND THESE URBAN LOCATIONS
WILL BE QUICK TO PRODUCE RUNOFF WHICH MAY FLOOD ARROYOS...WASHES...
DRAINAGES...AND LOW LYING FLOOD PRONE AREAS THIS MORNING. IF YOU
ENCOUNTER FLOOD WATERS TURN AROUND, DON`T DROWN.
