AN AREA OF SHOWERS IN SOUTHEAST ARIZONA AND NORTHWESTERN MEXICO
IS STARTING TO MOVE NORTHEASTWARD AROUND 15 MPH AND MAY START TO
AFFECT THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE BORDERLAND DURING THE NEXT TWO
HOURS. EXPECT SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS MODERATE TO HEAVY SHOWERS
ALONG WITH VERY ISOLATED EMBEDDED LOW TOP THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP
DURING THE NEXT TWO HOURS. WITH A SUPER MOIST AND UNSTABLE AIR
MASS IN PLACE AND CONSIDERABLE WET GROUND OVER MANY AREAS...THE
POTENTIAL REMAINS VERY HIGH FOR FLASH FLOODING. SMALL HAIL WITH
WIND GUSTS TO 45 MPH AND CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING IS ALSO
POSSIBLE WITH ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. FORECAST MODELS SHOW THAT
THIS ACTIVITY WILL CONTINUE INTO THE NIGHT. CONTINUE TO KEEP A
HIGH LEVEL OF WEATHER AWARENESS AND NEVER ENTER ANY AREAS WHERE
WATER IS PONDING ON OR RUNNING ACROSS ROADWAYS.
