Episode Narrative A back door cold front squeezed through the central mountain passes and canyons into the Rio Grande Valley early in the morning, increasing low level moisture and setting up a surface boundary nearby. Thunderstorms formed south of Albuquerque in the afternoon and moved north across eastern portions of the Duke City. Three quarters to over two inches of rain fell over the eastern heights and foothills in less than one hours time. This resulted in major street flooding with up to two and a half feet of standing water on streets, stranding vehicles. Other flooding around Abiquiu washed out a county road.
Event Narrative Heavy rain caused flooding on County Road 155, washing out culverts and parts of the road.
