A flood watch was issued for a broad swath of Arizona due to widespread rainfall expected from a storm moving in from California.

The flood watch was to be in effect noon Thursday to Friday afternoon, and communities in the watch area included Kingman, Tucson, Prescott, Lake Havasu City, Wickenburg and Safford, but not Phoenix.

The National Weather Service said rain totals up to 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) are possible across lower deserts, with higher totals in higher terrain.

The weather service's Flagstaff office said "mountains will experience the brunt of this weather event, causing creeks and streams to run, possibly heavy at times."
