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, 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 Saturday night.

* Afternoon and evening thunderstorms are expected to develop both
  today and Saturday 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


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.
