Thursday saw a rash of flash flood warnings issued for a wide swath of the country, from extreme southeast California to central and northern Arizona and southern Nevada. Storms, according to forecasters, can quickly cause flash flooding in washes, streams, and low water crossings.
After repeated downpours, several rivers and washes in the region, including Moenkopi Wash near Tuba City, Arizona, reached or exceeded their major flood stages. Tuba City is about 73 miles north of Flagstaff, making it one of the most northern points in Arizona.
AccuWeather predicts that more showers and thunderstorms will develop across the Southwest through the weekend’s end.
