...ABUNDANT MOISTURE FROM THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL STORM ODILE TO
MOVE ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST...

AS THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL STORM ODILE MOVE INTO A SOUTHWEST STEERING
FLOW WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...ABUNDANT MOISTURE WILL MOVE INTO FAR WEST
TEXAS AND SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO.  AS SUCH...THE CHANCES OF HEAVY RAIN
WILL INCREASE WEDNESDAY INTO FRIDAY...ESPECIALLY FROM CULBERSON
COUNTY...INCLUDING THE GUADALUPE MOUNTAINS...SOUTHEAST NEW
MEXICO...THE NORTHERN PERMIAN BASIN AND DAVIS MOUNTAINS. MANY OF
THESE AREAS RECEIVED HEAVY RAINFALL ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY OF LAST
WEEK AND SOILS ARE ALREADY NEAR SATURATION. ADDITIONAL HEAVY
RAINFALL WILL GENERATE RUNOFF QUICKLY AND INCREASE THE POTENTIAL
FOR FLOODING AND FLASH FLOODING.

THE TIMING AND PLACEMENT OF ODILE/S REMNANTS ARE STILL UNCERTAIN.  HOWEVER...
WITH ATMOSPHERIC MOISTURE OVER 150 PERCENT OF NORMAL...THIS PATTERN
IS FAVORABLE FOR HEAVY RAINFALL. WIDESPREAD AREAS OF CULBERSON
COUNTY AND SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO MAY RECEIVE CLOSE TO ONE INCH OF
RAINFALL...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS OVER 2 INCHES POSSIBLE.
FLASH FLOOD WATCHES MAY EVENTUALLY BE ISSUED WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO
24 HOURS. BE SURE TO MONITOR THE FORECAST FOR ANY ADDITIONAL
UPDATES.
