Monsoon season is in full swing across the Borderland with deep moisture streaming over the region. With daytime heating the atmosphere will once again become unstable with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms resulting. Some storms will produce heavy rain with potential for Flash Flooding. Keep an eye to the sky and seek shelter and move to higher ground if storms develop in your area.
A very moist atmosphere, along with an unstable airmass, will lead to areas of heavy rainfall and potential flash flooding this afternoon into early Sunday morning. The best locations for this potential include the Sacramento Mountains, the Black Range and Gila Wilderness of west central New Mexico, and Hidalgo County in southwest New Mexico. 2-3 inches of rain is possible with locally even higher amounts. This could lead to flash flooding and poses a dangerous threat to people near the heavy rain. The remainder of the area including the El Paso/Las Cruces metroplex, could also see heavy rain and some flooding, and may be added to the watch later.
