Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:13 AM MDT on July 28, 2014

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 9 am PDT /9 am MST/ this
morning through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Las Vegas has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of northwest Arizona...
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 California... Cadiz basin... Death Valley National
Park... eastern Mojave Desert... eastern Sierra slopes... morongo
basin... Owens Valley... San Bernardino County-upper Colorado
River valley... western Mojave Desert 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.

* From 9 am PDT /9 am MST/ this morning through this evening

* several upper level disturbances could potentially organize strong
thunderstorms today and this evening. With plenty of moisture in
place across the southern Great Basin and Mojave Desert
thunderstorms could easily produce one to two inches of rainfall
in a short period of time. Areas near recent burn scars will also
be more susceptible to increased runoff and flash flooding or
debris flows.

* Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway since flood waters are
usually deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is
powerful enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering
flooded roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...
a Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
