Since Last Flash Flood Watch

Posted: 07 Sep 2016 05:34 AM

Flash Flood Watches were issued yesterday for expected heavy rainfall overnight and into today. These watches are issued by NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) and the featured map displays the number of days since the last such watch issued by a WFO in the country. For some parts of the country, it has been over a year since the last such watch was issued. The current watches over the desert southwest are related to moisture from Hurricane Newton.

Good = 10
Bad = 2
