Tropical Storm Rosa expected to drench Southwest

A map made by the National Hurricane Center shows the projected path of Tropical Storm Rosa as of 8 a.m. ET on Oct. 1 2018

The center of Rosa, which was a hurricane until late Sunday, was expected to hit Baja California and Sonora by early Tuesday, bringing 3 to 6 inches (7.5 to 15 centimeters) of rain, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

"It's been a pretty decent soaking rain for most of western Colorado", he said. About 10 vehicles including a bus were at a standstill in the water or trying to drive through it.

The soldiers planned to build flood berms and erect barriers and sandbags, officials said.

One area of Arizona received 3.64 inches, the weather service said.

In southern Arizona, heavy rain Monday flooded streets in Yuma and caused power outages in parts of the city.

With more rain expected in the Valley on Wednesday, the Pendergast School District has not yet commented on when classes for Desert Horizon Elementary will be back in session.

The remnants of Hurricane Rosa are forecast to bring heavy rain and the threat of flash flooding to the Southwest over the next few days.

"Moisture will surge north into central and northern Utah beginning Tuesday in advance of Hurricane Rosa, allowing for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms which will be heavy at times", the NWS said in its warning.

By Tuesday afternoon, Rosa will head toward the deserts of Arizona.

Flash flood watches were in effect in parts of Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah.

As Rosa trudges northeast, the storm will dump 2 to 4 inches of rain on much of Arizona and up to 6 inches in the mountains. Yuma, Arizona, the USA's driest city with only about 3.6 inches of rainfall a year, could see almost that much in the next couple of days.

The weather service Tuesday said flash flooding was expected after up to 2 inches (5 centimeters) of rain fell in metro Phoenix by midmorning, with more rain expected.

Flash flooding began and lasted most of the day throughout areas of the Valley near washes and drains.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert mobilized about 200 National Guard soldiers Monday to prepare for potential flooding in areas where recent wildfires left burn scars that could increase runoff.

Mexican authorities had declared a state of emergency for Ensenada, on Baja California state's Pacific coast, and Mexicali, the state capital across the border from Calexico, California.

Another storm, Tropical Storm Sergio, is about 790 miles south of the tip of the Baja Peninsula and slowly moving west across the Pacific Ocean.

Rosa's maximum sustained winds had decreased to 40 miles per hour as of Monday afternoon, and the storm's center was heading north-northeast at 10 miles per hour.
