The Four Corners region of the United States remains at risk for flash flooding through the end of the weekend.
Thunderstorms will continue to increase in coverage across the Four Corners, as well as neighboring parts of Nevada and Wyoming later on Sunday.
The thunderstorms will persist through the evening with the majority diminishing for the late night hours.
The presence of abundant moisture will allow some of the thunderstorms to unleash torrential rain, heavy enough to cause flash flooding and debris flows.
Washes and arroyos can also quickly turn into raging waterways.
Sunday's threat for flash flooding comes after numerous such problems occurred on Friday and Saturday.
As a record 1.36 inches of rain poured down at the airport, flash flooding ensued around Albuquerque, N.M. On the southwest side of the city, several vehicles became submerged as water inundated Central Avenue.
The violent thunderstorms that soaked Albuquerque on Friday also produced a wind gust of 89 mph, setting the record for the strongest gust reported at the airport. A gust of 78 mph from June 26, 2011, previously held the record, according to the National Weather Service's Albuquerque Office.
After the storms for the first half of the weekend, the threat for flash flooding across the Four Corners will gradually lessen in a west-to-east fashion Sunday and Monday, as drier air works into the region.
