Flash Flood Watches and Warnings are in effect across northern Arizona today as the monsoon continues full force.

The National Weather Service has issued warnings for many areas, including Flagstaff, Jerome, Prescott and Coconino and Navajo Counties. County officials called for a Shelter in Place order for the Mt. Elden Estates area, which is directly below the Museum Fire Burn Scar. Heavy rainfall was recorded on the west side of Flagstaff in the University Heights area where a city rain gauge recorded nearly an inch of rainfall in 15 minutes. A National Weather Service map shows a Flash Flood Watch from Kingman, south to the U.S.-Mexico border, and east to the Arizona-New Mexico state line. NWS says it will remain in effect until 11 p.m. Saturday.
