following areas... lower Rio Grande Valley... San Francisco River
Valley and Southwest Mountains.

from last night and this morning... and additional rainfall over
these saturated areas will lead to a significant flash flooding
threat.

water... ash... and debris could develop after heavy downpours
impact the area. Residents and travelers through Glenwood...
Alma... Mogollon... and Pleasanton should remain alert as flash
flood warnings may be issued later on today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
