Renewed Flash Flood Watch Issued in Northern AZ: Tuesday - Wednesday @ 7PM Featured

Rain could fall in excess of 1-2 inches per hour.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Flagstaff has issued another Flash Flood watch for today and tomorrow, stating, "Widespread abundant moisture will combine with an upper level disturbance moving westward across the area Today and into early Wednesday morning. Because of this combination there is an elevated risk of flash floods occurring across all of Apache, Navajo, Coconino, Yavapai, and Northern Gila Counties.”

What’s a Flash Flood Watch? When developing conditions may lead to flash flooding within the watch area, a Flash Flood Watch is issued. It is recommended that people, especially those located along nearby creeks, rivers or other potential flash flood areas should:

  • Monitor weather forecasts
  • Be prepared to take action

Expect typical monsoon storm formation in the early afternoon hours, however, as the NWS explains, “... more widespread and stronger storms are expected to form near the disturbance as it moves west across northern Arizona Tuesday night into Wednesday. The strongest storms will have rainfall rates in excess of 1 to 2 inches per hour and could easily overwhelm flood prone locations.”
