HURRICANE WATCH: Tropical Depression 16-E is moving into mainland Mexico and is spreading heavy rain into portions of the Southwest United States. With the system over land, it will continue to weaken through the rest of the day.
Moisture associated with the system will continue to bring heavy rain to the Baja California Peninsula, as well as northwest Mexico through tonight. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches, with isolated amounts of up to 12 inches, can cause flooding and life-threatening mudslides.
Moisture will continue to be drawn into Arizona, Southern California and western New Mexico today and tonight and perhaps as far north as parts of southwestern Colorado and southern Utah by Tuesday.
Tuesday should still be okay as that SW energy dips down a hair but continues to provide some waist high plus sets in the AM and slowly fade out later in the day.
We’ll also see some small, but potent, 16-18 second interval swell roll in from a 215-220 degree angle later in the day. That should cough up some powerful little waist high plus sets.
