Showers and thunderstorms continue over central to northeast New Mexico. Most activity will weaken, except in the far northeast where storms will increase in coverage and intensity through the night.
Storms will increase across northeastern New Mexico tonight as a cold front invades the area. Slow-moving storms could create heavy downpours and flash flooding. Otherwise overnight temperatures will be seasonable.
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 5 am MDT Thursday for all of northeast New Mexico, including Angel Fire, Raton, Des Moines, Clayton, Las Vegas, Clines Corners, Santa Rosa, and Tucumcari. Be alert to ponding of water on roads and in low-lying areas. Fast and abrupt flows could also develop in normally dry arroyos, low water crossings, and river beds. Heed any warnings that might be issued later!
Abundant atmospheric moisture will combine with slow storm motion to produce locally heavy rainfall amounts in excess of two inches, mainly late Thursday through Friday.
Dew point temperature is one of many parameters used to monitor moisture surges of the North American Monsoon across the Southwestern U.S.
