Episode Narrative As an upper level trough crossed the northern Rocky Mountains, moisture surged northward across New Mexico. Initially, a severe storm with hail and very heavy rain formed over the Sacramento Mountains. Then, while the associated cold front moved down the eastern plains, a few prolific lightning producing storms impacted the Rio Grande Valley with heavy rain and hail.
Event Narrative Nearly 2 inches of rain fell across portions of northwest Rio Rancho. The intersection of Northern and Idalia was closed due to flash flooding. Along Unser, though the road was not closed, it was impassible to several cars which got stuck in the high waters. A sewer line was also damaged, which allowed sewage to flow into the Montoya's Arroyo.
