Dangerous Storm to Hit the United States This Week

The storm in California was just the beginning, as more natural disasters are expected from Tuesday to Thursday.

The storm, which brought intense rain, flooding, strong winds, and snow to California, will move to the southwest of the United States until mid-week.

Following concerns about floods in the deserts, heavy snow accumulation is expected in the mountains of Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado.

As the storm advances inland, threats to life and property persist, requiring continuous precautions by the population.

Intense rains in the desert landscape generate rapid runoff, increasing the risk of flash floods, landslides, and other debris flows.

This situation raises concern among meteorologists about the interior of the southwest in the coming days.

The possibility of extreme weather conditions underlines the importance of surveillance and preparation to mitigate potential risks.

Experts urge people to follow forecasts and safety recommendations to minimize the impacts of adverse weather phenomena in the southwest.

While the atmospheric river that affected Southern California on Monday weakened as it moved east, it will retain enough strength to trigger intense rains.

This information about the storm in the country has been made known thanks to AccuWeather Storm Warning meteorologist Joseph Bauer.

The phenomenon, known as a rain hose, will lose power when changing direction, but will maintain its ability to generate adverse weather conditions in the region.

Bauer stated that this system will continue to affect the climate in the interior of the southwestern United States, persisting with heavy rains in the surrounding deserts.

The major cities of Las Vegas and Phoenix face a significant risk of flash floods. Las Vegas will experience heavier rain during Tuesday morning and afternoon, while Phoenix will be more affected by heavy rain from noon to the evening on Tuesday.

The possibility of sudden floods persists in both cities, highlighting the importance of immediate precautions.

Areas with recent scars of wildfires will face a higher risk of debris flows. Generally, areas recently affected by wildfires have an increased propensity to this aforementioned risk.

Dry streambeds, locally known as arroyos, have the ability to quickly fill with running water.

The connection between fire-affected areas and the risk of debris flows underscores the need for constant monitoring and caution in these regions.

In the more northern zone, around Salt Lake City, episodes of rain and snow are anticipated from Tuesday to Thursday due to the storm. Significant snow accumulation is expected in areas to the east of the city and much of the Wasatch mountain range.

Possible road closures, especially along stretches of Interstates 70 and 80 through the Rocky Mountains, demand extra caution for drivers and residents in these areas.
