Remnants of Rosa Producing Flooding Rains in the Southwest

2 Oct 2018, 4:26 pm

Heavy rain continues across portions of the Southwest, especially in Arizona as the remnants of former Hurricane Rosa move closer to the region. Some areas have seen more than a half a foot of rain since this weekend and Phoenix has seen one of its wettest days on record. Flash Flood Watches continue from Idaho to Arizona. An additional couple inches of rainfall in some areas could produce flooding.

Tropical moisture remains high across the region, fueling heavy rainfall. Life-threatening flash flooding and debris flows are possible in the deserts, with mudslides and landslides in mountainous terrain. In addition, larger streams and rivers could experience significant rises and possible flooding due to the widespread heavy rainfall. Isolated severe storms may also occur into Wednesday.
