* A low pressure system will continue to shift over New Mexico
  through tonight. Numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue
  across central and western New Mexico due to instability
  associated with this feature combined with continued above normal
  moisture. These storms will be capable of very heavy rainfall,
  with rainfall rates exceeding two inches per hour in the strongest
  storms. These rates combined with some already saturated grounds
  will increase the threat for flash flooding. Areas over and
  downstream of wildfire burn scars will be especially susceptible
  to flash flooding.
