PHOENIX - Remnant moisture from Odile is moving in, increasing showers and thunderstorms around our state.
As of 1 PM, heavy showers have developed in the East Valley and are moving west/northwest. They have already produced very heavy rainfall prompting Flood Advisories for the Phoenix Metro and a Flash Flood Warning in Mesa and along the 202 until 2:30 PM.
Flooding is going to be a concern with our already saturated ground. Southeastern Arizona is getting hit the hardest and could see up to 6" of rain by Friday morning. In the Valley, 1-2" is possible with up to 3" in parts of the East Valley and to our south in Pinal county.
Here are the impacts for the rest of the week:
- WIDESPREAD RAIN ACROSS OUR STATE WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.
- GREATEST THREATS: HEAVY RAIN AND FLASH FLOODING.
- FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT 11 AM WEDNESDAY THRU 6 PM THURSDAY.
By this weekend, conditions will start to improve, but lingering moisture will mean more storm chances in the higher terrain.
