PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - The National Weather Service in Flagstaff has issued a flash flood warning for Yavapai County in west-central Arizona.

The warning is in effect until 9:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Weather Service meteorologists say Doppler radar showed thunderstorms producing heavy rain across the warned area around 6 p.m.

They say some locations could experience flooding include the towns of Mayer and Pine Flats and the area in Prescott that was scarred by a recent wildfire.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say residences near drainages and creeks may be affected by high water and debris flows, particularly Big Bug Creek and surrounding tributaries such as Grapevine Creek and Hackberry Creek.

Heavy rains may cause flooding across State Highway 69 near Mayer.
