Flash flood watches cover parts of 4 states in Southwest

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued flash flood watches for parts of four states in the Southwest for Monday and Tuesday.

Areas covered by watches due to what the weather service’s Las Vegas office calls “abundant tropical moisture from Hurricane Rosa” include southern Nevada, southeastern California, southwestern and central Utah and the western two-thirds of Arizona.

Forecasts call for heavy rainfall in the watch areas, which include Las Vegas, Phoenix and Salt Lake City, with possible flooding in slot canyons and normally dry washes and a potential for debris flows from recent wildfire burn scars.
