Episode Narrative A deep subtropical moisture tap combined with weak steering flow allowed widespread heavy rainfall to develop across much of northern and central New Mexico. Training storms over the southeast corner of the state created torrential rainfall and localized flash flooding. Flash Flooding was also observed along the higher terrain of the central and west central mountains.
Event Narrative A large area of one foot deep water along Highway 267 between mile markers 6 and 8 made the road impassible.
