Most of Southeastern New Mexico's population is centered in and around the Pecos Valley from the Roswell area south to Artesia, Carlsbad, and Loving. And in and around the Hobbs and Lovington areas. Given the fact that nearly every one of these communities have missed out on the heaviest rains over the past three days it would appear to most of us that this rain event has left us out in the cold.

But if you take a look at the NWS MesoWest Graphics posted above and look at just where the heaviest rains have fallen over the past 24-hours and the past three days its clear that several locations have had heavy rains. Once again the theme of scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms is forecast to continue into the end of this upcoming week. Locally heavy rains will be possible along with localized flash flooding especially in those areas that have already received heavy rainfall.
