PHOENIX -- As Hurricane Odile weakens and breaks up, the residual moisture has to go somewhere. And much of it appears headed into Arizona, especially the southeast portion of the state. As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch, which begins at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday.

Right now, it looks like the Valley could see more than one inch of rain on Wednesday and Thursday, though it’s quite possible we could see localized rainfall amounts much higher than that. However, there are some areas of southern Arizona that are forecast to receive more than four inches of rain this week.

Temperatures will be headed down as the clouds from Odile move in. Highs the rest of the week are going to be in the 90s and even the 80s around metro Phoenix, with nice morning temperatures in the 70s.
