period of moist low level east winds along with a tap of

small streams and arroyos... and avoid flooded low water
crossings.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash
flood warnings be issued.
