* 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.
