* an abrupt surge of subtropical moisture is expected into much of
western and central New Mexico late Wednesday into Wednesday night.
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 lead to
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.

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.
