Flash Flood Watch in effect through Wednesday evening
I woke up this morning to find 1.05" of rain in a bucket I left out and .93" in my rain gauge in central El Paso! More is on the way that is why the entire Borderland is under a Flash Flood Watch now until midnight tomorrow, Wednesday night. The first wave of tropical rain swept through over night compliments of now Tropical Storm Odile over the central Baja Pennisula. This low pressure center will track into southern Arizona tomorrow and then into northern New Mexico Thursday night. This system has the potential of producing another 1" to 3" of local rainfall by Thursday night as it travels through and then out of our region
I will give you a closer look at predicted rainfall amounts, temperatures and more tonight at 5, 6, 6:30 & 10 P.M. on NewsChannel 9.
