...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE TONIGHT...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of north and central New Mexico, including the
  following areas: Central Highlands, De Baca County, East Slopes
  Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Eastern Lincoln County, Eastern San
  Miguel County, Estancia Valley, Far Northeast Highlands,
  Guadalupe County, Harding County, Jemez Mountains, Lower Chama
  River Valley, Lower Rio Grande Valley, Middle Rio Grande
  Valley/Albuquerque Metro Area, Northeast Highlands, Northern
  Sangre de Cristos above 9500 feet/Red River, Northwest Highlands,
  Quay County, Raton Ridge/Johnson Mesa, San Francisco River
  Valley, Sandia/Manzano Mountains, Santa Fe Metro Area, South
  Central Highlands, South Central Mountains, Southern Sangre de
  Cristos above 9500 feet, Southwest Mountains, Union County, Upper
  Rio Grande Valley, Upper Tularosa Valley, West Central Highlands,
  West Central Mountains, West Central Plateau and West Slopes
  Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

* Through late tonight...

* A very moist atmosphere will slowly destabilize this afternoon,
  leading to scattered to numerous slow-moving thunderstorms across
  much of northern and western New Mexico. Storms may also repeatedly
  move over the same area, leading to prolonged heavy downpours.

* Heavy downpours will lead to ponding of water in low lying areas
  and abrupt and excessive water runoff near steeper terrain. As
  soils become saturated from prolonged downpours, flash flooding
  will be a threat. Normally dry creeks, arroyos, low water
  crossings, and river beds could turn to raging torrents during
  flash flooding episodes.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash
Flood Warnings be issued.
