FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Flash flood watches remain in effect across much of Arizona as forecasters say slow-moving monsoon storms could create hazards.

The National Weather Service reported heavy flows Thursday morning in several creeks and washes in southern Mohave County and eastern Coconino County.

A flash flood watch for Yavapai, Coconino, Navajo and Apache counties and northern Gila County was issued through Thursday afternoon, while one that included Mohave County was issued through early Friday morning.

Parts of Arizona saw street flooding and other effects of storm runoff earlier this week. The weather service says a few places of southern Arizona had over five inches of rain over the last four days.

Forecasters say there’ll be a gradual west-to-east drying trend Friday and into next week.
