flash flood watch 0814 1521Abundant moisture coupled with an incoming upper level trough will bring more heavy rain chances for the area Monday afternoon. The highest chance for heavy precipitation seems to be located in the Gila region. Any showers or thunderstorms that do form will be very efficient rain makers and will be slow moving leading to isolated flooding. Additionally, due to over saturated soils from previous heavy rainfall, many areas over the lowlands will be sensitive to any accumulating precipitation which will quickly lead to flash flooding.

flash flood watch 0814 1521Abundant moisture will combine with a weak upper level trough to produce numerous showers and thunderstorms across the region again through Sunday afternoon. These thunderstorms will be very efficient rain producers and they will be slow moving. In addition, many locations have already had heavy rain leading to saturated ground. This combination will lead a continued threat for flash flooding.
