...FLASH FLOOD WATCH MONDAY NIGHT FOR SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO AND THE
WESTERN PERMIAN BASIN...

.THE APPROACH OF A STRONG UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL COMBINE WITH
GOOD LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND A DRYLINE TO PRODUCE LARGE THUNDERSTORMS
OVER THE AREA MONDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING.  AN UNUSUALLY MOIST
ATMOSPHERE AND POSSIBLE TRAINING OF STORMS WILL CREATE THE
POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN THAT MAY LEAD TO FLASH FLOODING
MONDAY NIGHT.  THE GREATEST CHANCE FOR HEAVY RAIN LOOKS TO BE OVER
SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO AND THE WESTERN PERMIAN BASIN.
