 WATCHES AND WARNINGS -------------------- There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
Interests in northwestern Mexico and the southwestern United States monitor the progress of the remnants of Tropical Depression Nineteen-E for the continued threat of heavy rainfall and flooding.
 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 300 AM MDT (0900 UTC), the remnants of Nineteen-E were located near latitude 28.1 North, longitude 110.0 West.  The remnants are moving toward the north-northeast near 9 mph (15 km/h).  Moisture associated with the remnants should move northeastward across northwestern Mexico and into the southwestern and south-central United States over the next day or two.
Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts, mainly over the Gulf of California.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  The remnants of the depression are expected to produce total rain accumulations of 5 to 10 inches in the Mexican states of Sonora and northern Sinaloa, and 2 to 4 inches in western Chihuahua. Isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches are possible in Sonora and northern Sinaloa.  This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides.
Moisture associated with the remnants of the depression will also lead to areas of heavy rain and a heightened risk of flash flooding in the southwestern United States today, and in the southern Plains beginning on Friday.
