A cluster of thunderstorms developed over the Sacramento Mountains by midday Friday. It didn't take long for them to start causing problems over and near the Little Bear Burn Scar. A couple of Flash Flood Advisories, and a Flash Flood Warning was issued for the area. A National Weather Service employee reported that Forest Service road #107 was washed out near the Runnels Stables on the west end of Bonito Lake at 1:47 PM MDT.

 Please visit the Albuquerque National Weather Service Office Facebook Page to view a short video of flash flooding shot in Littleton Canyon. Flash flooding occurred in the area as a result of the thunderstorms. The Nogal IRAWS 12 (at 8,917' MSL) recorded .57" of rainfall. Remember that it will not take much rain over the burn scar areas to continue to produce rapid flash flooding for a long time to come yet.
