across the area. Any stronger or slower moving thunderstorms
could unleash heavy rainfall in a quick period of time.
Rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches in an hour or less... with
locally higher amounts... are possible in some cases.

* Impacts... roads could be closed due to water flowing over them
as well as mud and rocks washing onto them. Roadway pavement
may be washed away. Some dirt and secondary gravel roads could
be washed out. Rapid rises in washes could also occur leading
to flash flooding downstream. Any burn areas... such as the
CArpenter 1 burn area on Mount Charleston... could also see
debris flows take place if heavy rain falls on or runs onto
the burned landscape.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
