Severe T-Storms - Heavy Rains - Flash Flooding Today Into Tonight.

7-5-2021. Looking East From Alamogordo, NM. Severe T-Storms - Heavy Rains - Flash Flooding. Storm Prediction Center. Severe Weather Outlook Today. HRRR Rainfall Forecast. Valid At 1 AM MDT Monday Morning. A weak cold front is forecast to sag slowly southward over the local area this afternoon and evening. Favorable wind shear, instability, surface capes, and lapse rates combined with a rich moisture laded atmosphere (my dew point temp in Carlsbad at 9 AM MDT is 70ºF) will all combine to produce clusters of thunderstorms today into early Monday morning.  Thunderstorms will become severe this afternoon and evening and will be capable of producing large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 60 mph. Deadly cloud to ground lightning will accompany all thunderstorms. Locally heavy rainfall may also produce flash flooding. The area is still saturated from recent heavy to excessive rainfall so flash flooding will develop rapidly with any thunderstorm that produces heavy rains.

June 29, 2021. Boyd Dr & Radio Blvd. Carlsbad, New Mexico. Normally Dry Dark Canyon Arroyo. I made a typo on the time of the two videos above. It should read 4:43 PM DT and 4:45 PM MDT on the title page. Dark Canyon Flood Gauge. San Jose Blvd. My photo above was taken at 4:11 PM MDT. At 4:15 PM MDT, the floodwaters in the arroyo were measured at 17'.99". The floodwaters crested at 2:30 PM MDT with a depth at the San Jose Blvd gauge of 19'.26" at 2:30 PM MDT. This is the third-highest crest in the arroyo at that gauge since 1966. Sadly we had one flash flood fatality when a person drove their vehicle into the Dark Canyon floodwaters. June 29, 2021.
