The National Weather Service announced flash flood watches through Tuesday for areas including southern Nevada, southeastern California, southwestern and central Utah and the western two-thirds of Arizona.

Rosa is expected to take a direct path over Phoenix on Tuesday, approaching late Monday with rain.

"It could be a tropical depression or tropical storm at that point, but regardless it's going to be a significant increase", says Hopper. Some areas could get up to 6 inches.

How much rainfall will Rosa bring to Desert Southwest? .

"Although flooding is a very serious concern, some of this rainfall will likely be beneficial since the Southwest is now experiencing drought conditions".

Early Saturday, Rosa was about 625 miles (1,005 kilometers) south-southwest of Punta Eugenia with maximum sustained winds of around 100 miles per hour. The storm is encountering cooler waters in the Pacific and therefore powering down. It is expected to be a tropical storm when it nears northern portions peninsula on Monday night.

The hurricane center said there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect, but swells generated by Rosa were expected to cause unsafe surf and rip current conditions along portions of southwestern Mexico, the peninsula and southern California.

All that rain can lead to life-threatening flash flooding in the deserts, forecasters said.

Hurricane Rosa weakened slightly but was still a major hurricane Friday as as it churned toward the Mexican coast, the National Hurricane Center said.
