Parts of central and western New Mexico are under a flash flood watch as heavy rains are expected through Wednesday.

The National Weather Service says scattered storms may strike throughout the region Tuesday, bring potential flooding.

Forecasters say parts of the state could see up to two inches of rains. Drier weather is expected later Wednesday.

Last month, heavy rains brought flooding to towns in eastern New Mexico and Albuquerque. The National Weather Service says last month was the fourth wettest July on record for New Mexico.
