Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 5:32 PM MDT Sep. 19, 2018 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a

* urban and small stream flood advisory for...
Bernalillo County in central New Mexico...

* until 730 PM MDT.

* At 529 PM MDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to a series
of thunderstorms training northward across eastern Albuquerque.
This will cause urban and small stream flooding in the advisory
area. Locally near one inch of rain has already fallen in the
foothills above Tramway Boulevard.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
eastern Albuquerque, Sandia heights, and Carnuel.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Both localized and distant heavy rainfall will create dangerous flows
in arroyos and over low water crossings. Do not attempt to drive
through these waters. Water in arroyos may travel many miles and take
hours to reach your location from upstream rain areas.

342 PM MDT Wed Sep 19 2018

... 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.
