The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* A portion of Southeast Arizona, including the following areas,
  Baboquivari Mountains, Catalina and Rincon Mountains, Chiricahua
  Mountains, Dragoon and Mule and Huachuca and Santa Rita Mountains,
  Eastern Cochise County below 5000 feet, Galiuro and Pinaleno
  Mountains, South Central Pinal County, Southeast Pinal County,
  Tohono O`odham Nation, Tucson Metro Area, Upper Gila River Valley,
  Upper San Pedro River Valley, Upper Santa Cruz River Valley/Altar
  Valley, Western Pima County and White Mountains of Graham and
  Greenlee Counties.

* Through Sunday evening.

* An approaching weather system and saturated atmosphere will bring
  periods of widespread heavy showers and thunderstorms through at
  least late Sunday.

* Locally heavy rainfall combined with a saturated ground will
  likely result in flash flooding of washes, small streams, and poor
  drainage areas. Burn scars from past and more recent wildfires
  will be especially prone to flash flooding and debris flow. Flash
  flooding may also lead to significant mainstem river rises that
  could linger on Sunday.


You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
