Episode Narrative A very moist southerly flow was in place over the area. The atmospheric moisture content was almost twice the normal value for early July. The flow was such that thunderstorm movement was slow, subjecting locations to very heavy rainfall for long periods of time. Occasional wet microbursts were also observed.
Event Narrative Arroyos in the Santa Teresa area became full and led to flooding on NM Highway 273.
