southern Sandoval County in north central New Mexico...
Bernalillo County in central New Mexico...

* until 815 PM MDT.

* At 617 PM MDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause urban and small stream flooding in
the advisory area.

Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Corrales, Los Ranchos de Albuquerque,
Paradise Hills, Northern Meadows, Cabezon, Vista Hills, Rio Rancho
intel area and Rio Rancho city center.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other poor drainage areas and low lying spots.

Remain alert for flooding even in locations not receiving rain.
Arroyos, streams, and rivers can become raging killer currents in a
matter of minutes, even from distant rainfall.

... 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, eastern Lincoln County,
Estancia valley, lower Rio Grande Valley, middle Rio Grande
Valley including the Albuquerque Metro area, Sandia and Manzano
Mountains, south Central Highlands, south central mountains,
southwest Chaves County, upper Tularosa Valley, west Central
Highlands, west central mountains and west Central Plateau.

* Through late tonight

* an abrupt surge of subtropical moisture is expected into much of
western and central New Mexico this evening and tonight. This
will lead to scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms,
many of which will be capable of producing locally heavy
rainfall.

* High rainfall rates over short durations will likely produce
excessive runoff in many areas, and this could lead to flash
flooding in localized areas. Repeated movement of storms over the
same areas will escalate the flash flooding threat. Wildfire burn
scars will be especially susceptible to flash flooding.

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.
