Flash Flood Watch has been extended through Sunday
We are starting the day with plenty of moisture, Las Cruces, Sunland Park, Anthony and Chaparral were hit pretty hard over night into the early morning hours.
A flash flood watch is in effect today through 8 am Sunday morning.
Heavy rainfall is expected through much of this period and the combination of this heavy rain and saturated ground in many places, flash flooding is a definite possibility.
By Monday and Tuesday the deeper moisture will have moved off but we will by no means be
pulling the rain chances for the forecast.
As a matter of fact we will see at least a slight chance for thunderstorms through the
end of the coming week.
Get those sandbags as soon as you can if you live in flood prone areas, don't drive into flooded streets, take your time commuting to work and school today, and stay safe.
