September 28, 2018

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona could be drenched next week.

The National Weather Service says remnants of Hurricane Rosa are expected to hit the state Sunday, bringing heavy rain, high winds and the threat of localized flooding.

Up to 4 inches (10 centimeters) could fall in some areas through Wednesday. Those include Flagstaff, Payson, Prescott and the Grand Canyon’s South Rim. Up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) is forecast at the canyon’s North Rim.

Seemingly, no part of the state will be left out.

Forecasters say metro Phoenix, Yuma, and eastern and western Arizona could see widespread rain up to a couple of inches.

Normally dry washes could become flooded, as well as low-lying roadways.
