The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of northwest Arizona, southeast California, and
  Nevada, including the following areas, in northwest Arizona,
  Lake Havasu and Fort Mohave, Lake Mead National Recreation
  Area, Northwest Deserts, and Northwest Plateau. In southeast
  California, Cadiz Basin, Death Valley National Park, Eastern
  Mojave Desert, Eastern Sierra Slopes, Morongo Basin, Owens
  Valley, San Bernardino County-Upper Colorado River Valley, and
  White Mountains of Inyo County. In Nevada, Esmeralda and
  Central Nye County, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Las
  Vegas Valley, Lincoln County, Northeast Clark County, Sheep
  Range, Southern Clark County, Spring Mountains-Red Rock
  Canyon, and Western Clark and Southern Nye County.

* Through late tonight

* Afternoon and evening thunderstorms are expected to develop both
  today that will be capable of producing very high rainfall
  rates and areas of flash flooding. High terrain areas such as
  the Spring Mountains and the Sierra Nevada are favored for the
  highest rainfall totals, but these storms are expected to move
  into lower desert valley areas spreading the flash flood risk
  across much of the region as well.

* Very heavy rainfall rates are expected which will lead to
  flash flooding. Especially in high terrain areas and in highly
  vulnerable debris flow areas such as burn scars. With several
  instances of flash flooding over the recent weeks, already
  flash flood prone washes and low water crossings will be
  likely to flood again.


Be prepared to take action when Flash Flood Warnings are issued
and check to ensure you are able to receive them.

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most
flood deaths occur in vehicles.
