Flash flooding will be possible tonight...as abundant moisture
continues to move up from the south. This will fuel numerous
showers and thunderstorms over all areas through the night.
Widespread rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches with isolated heavier
amounts are possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday
Threat of flash flooding persists through Monday...as a healthy
flow Monsoon driven moisture continues to stream northward over
the borderland. This could result in an additional 1 to 2 inches
or heavy rainfall...with isolated higher amounts. 4 inch rain
totals through Monday...are not out of the question for an event
like this. The widespread flash flooding threat diminishes somewhat
after Monday...however isolated to scattered showers and storms
are still expected each day. Downburst winds...and localized
flooding from heavy rainfall and hail are the main threats.
