* until 200 am MST

* at 1205 am MST... an area of thunderstorms with very heavy
rainfall rates in northern Sonora Mexico will track north into
southwest Cochise... eastern Santa Cruz and far southeast Pima County
through 2 am MST. Although these storms are moving fast... to the
north at 25 mph... they will be capable of producing rainfall amounts
between 0.75 and 1.25 inches. The heaviest rainfall will likely
occur south of State Highway 92 south of Sierra Vista near the
strongest storms.

This rainfall will rapidly drain into washes... roadway dips and
other low lying areas resulting in minor flooding problems.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not underestimate the power of flood waters. Only a few inches of
rapidly flowing water can quickly carry away your vehicle.

* Through Thursday afternoon

* periods of showers and occasional thunderstorms are expected
through tonight with localized heavy rainfall possible later
this evening through Wednesday morning. Then... more widespread
heavy rain is likely later Wednesday through early Thursday as
the remnants of Odile moves across the region. This includes the
overnight hours which is not typical. As is normally the case
and expected this time... rainfall amounts will vary widely
across the area and will greatly depend on the exact path of the
storm. The heaviest rainfall amounts are expected to total 3 to
6 inches by late Thursday. Locally higher amounts are
possible... especially in the mountains.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are becoming favorable
for widespread flash flooding to develop. Monitor forecasts
closely and be ready to take quick action if flash flood warnings
are issued.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize
the dangers of flash floods. If flash flooding is observed... act
quickly. Turn around and take another Route.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio... commercial radio or television
stations... or your cable television provider for updates on this
flash flood threat.
