TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Flash flood watches have been issued for much of eastern Arizona due to forecast rain and thunderstorms from monsoon activity.

The watches cover much of Apache and Navajo counties on the north and extended southward through Graham and Greenlee counties to Cochise County and eastern Pima and Santa Cruz counties on the south.

The watches take effect late Tuesday morning and run into either late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.

Communities included in watch areas include Springerville, Show Low, Pinetop, Sierra Vista, Safford and Bisbee.

Forecasters say areas along washes, small streams and drainages are susceptible to flooding and that low-water crossings may become impassable. Also, dirt roads may be washed out.
