The movement of TD Emily will be influenced by a Southeast moving Cold Front. And that is the biggest question, where and when? Emily will follow the front and any slowing will slow down Emily.
The moving parts are a bit complex. The cold front will pass over the next few hours and then Emily. But anything slowing the front will complicate the picture. The 500mb Hgt Falls are not dramatic but after some digging southward the biggest falls are along the Eastern Coast and it would follow those Hgt Falls.
It can only go so far Westward before invariably turning N/E. There will be some strengthening in the Atlantic but after a while it will becoming a Tropical Depression once again.

The Flash Flood Watch continues for * a portion of north and central New Mexico, including the following areas: Central Highlands, Chaves County Plains, Curry County, De Baca County, Eastern Lincoln County, Estancia Valley, Guadalupe County, Quay County, Roosevelt County, Sandia/Manzano Mountains, South Central Highlands, South Central Mountains, Southwest Chaves County and Upper Tularosa Valley. * through late tonight * Abundant moisture and instability will lead to numerous slow- moving thunderstorms developing during the afternoon and evening across east central and southeast New Mexico. Thunderstorms may repeatedly impact the same area, leading to prolonged heavy rain. Some areas received heavy rain on Sunday, and saturated soils in these area will lead to increased runoff. Some of the heaviest rains may occur during the late afternoon and evening hours. * Heavy downpours will lead to ponding of water in low lying areas and abrupt and excessive water runoff near steeper terrain. Normally dry creeks, arroyos, low water crossings, and river beds could turn to raging torrents during flash flooding episodes. Road closures will be possible. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
