Abundant moisture now over the area combined with a storm system moving in from the Pacific Ocean will create an environment for showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain. Widespread rainfall totals of 0.5 inches to 1.5 inches with locally higher amounts likely. Higher amounts are expected in the mountains. The best chance for local areas of heavy rainfall will be through this evening and again late Wednesday afternoon and evening. * High rainfall rates or repeated showers and thunderstorms moving across the same location can result in rapidly rising water in area washes. This can create dangerous conditions, especially at low water crossings. A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are becoming favorable for flash flooding to develop. Monitor forecasts closely and be ready to take quick action if Flash Flood Warnings are issued. Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flash floods. If Flash Flooding is observed…act quickly. Turn around and take another route. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio…commercial radio or television stations…or your cable television provider for updates on this flash flood threat.
