Wet Weather in the Southwest

13 Mar 2020, 8:30 am

An active Jet Stream coupled with high humidity has lead to wet weather in the Southwest this week. Additional rainfall is expected into Saturday as upper level energy moves ashore.

As waves of showers and thunderstorms move from California into Arizona, pockets of heavy rain may produce isolated areas of flooding. Flash Flood Watches have been issued for portions of California, Arizona and Nevada.

Additional rain amounts look lighter into the weekend than what has been seen this week, but a few areas could see 1″ to 3″ of rain into early Sunday.

A slow moving front will finally move to the east and diminish. This will lead to less coverage of rain, with showers and thunderstorms more isolated.

The wet weather is expected to continue through the weekend. The precipitation outlook for next week shows above average precipitation as well.
