ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Eastern New Mexico will see significant rainfall Monday night and Tuesday morning, thanks to moisture from tropical storm Narda that is moving up the west coast of Mexico.
“The rain is really needed, but unfortunately it may be too much in a short period of time,” said Clay Anderson with the National Weather Service of Albuquerque.
Anderson said the storm could bring as much as 2-4 inches of rain to the eastern part of the state from now until Tuesday night.
“There is a flash flooding concern,” he said. “The water has to go somewhere, and eventually it will work its way into the Pecos River, so don’t be surprised if you see river flood warnings tomorrow (Tuesday) morning.”
A flash flood watch has been issued for the following counties: Lincoln, Curry, De Baca, Guadalupe, Quay, Roosevelt, Chaves, Lea and Eddy.
