PHOENIX -- Much of Arizona remains under a flash flood watch with a chance of heavy showers and thunderstorms.

"If we do get some thunderstorms, rain amounts would be one to two inches in a short time," said Hector Vasquez, National Weather Service meteorologist.

The NWS also says the flash flood watch will remain in effect until late Tuesday and comes after an evening of severe weather than brought flooding.

Authorities say 11 people were rescued in Wickenburg late Monday following a hard-hitting monsoon that struck a trailer park.

Officials say the best chance for thunderstorm development Tuesday will be over the northern and eastern parts of Arizona with the main hazard being locally heavy rainfall and flash flooding.
