Ahead of this system...an extended period of moist low level east winds along with a tap of monsoon moisture from Mexico is expected. The combination of these features will lead to increased shower and thunderstorm activity and the likelihood of heavy rainfall over the watch area.
  • Locations which have received heavy rainfall recently will be most susceptible to flash flooding. Other vulnerable locations include poor drainage areas...steep terrain and burn scars such as the Little Bear and Whitewater Baldy. Keep a watchful eye on small streams and arroyos...and avoid flooded low water crossings. 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.
