that only isolated showers continue over portions of Cochise County

moving to the east. With rainfall totals ranging from 2 to 5 inches
over the past 48 hours... numerous roadways and low water crossings
in the County will continue to be impacted by the heavy rain
received. Therefore... an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory is in
effect until 2 PM MST. This advisory replaces the Flood Warning that
was issued during the overnight hours.

Some of the roadways that have been affected by the heavy rain and
are closed include: Davis Road from Hwy 80 to Frontier Road.

safely. Move to higher ground.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
