The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* A portion of north and central New Mexico, including the following
  areas: Central Highlands, East Slopes Sangre de Cristo Mountains,
  Eastern San Miguel County, Far Northeast Highlands, Guadalupe
  County, Harding County, Northeast Highlands, Northern Sangre de
  Cristos above 9500 feet/Red River, Quay County, Raton Ridge/Johnson
  Mesa, Southern Sangre de Cristos above 9500 feet and Union County.


* until 5 AM MDT Thursday

* A cold front will invade northeastern New Mexico overnight and
  bring additional moisture to fuel heavy rainfall. In addition to
  the added moisture to the system, very light winds aloft will
  steer storms in a very slow fashion, leading to prolonged heavy
  downpours. The potential for storms to repeatedly move over the
  same local area is also high along and near the frontal boundary.

* 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

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Numerous afternoon and evening thunderstorms are expected across
the mountains and plains today, as deep monsoon moisture spreads
across the region. Storms look to spread south and east across
the immediate adjacent plains through the late afternoon and
evening hours and out across the far southeast plains through the
late evening hours and into early Thursday morning.

With abundant moisture in place, locally heavy rainfall will be
possible with all storms, leading to the potential of flash
flooding across the area today, particularly on area burn scars
and over urban locations.

In addition, a few storms over the eastern plains could reach
severe limits during the afternoon, producing 1 inch diameter hail
and 60 mph winds.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected Thursday and
Friday. Coverage of thunderstorms is then expected to diminish
some and be most likely across the higher terrain and adjacent
locations through the weekend and into the first part of next
week.

Risks with the storms will be lightning, small hail, and gusty
winds to 50 mph. Some storms could become marginally severe with
wind gusts to around 60 mph and quarter size hail. There will also
be a potential for flash flooding, especially Thursday and
Friday, and particularly across burn scars and urban areas.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely this afternoon and evening across much of southern Colorado.
