RIVERSIDE COUNTY MOUNTAINS-SAN DIEGO COUNTY MOUNTAINS-COACHELLA VALLEY-SAN DIEGO COUNTY DESERTS-The National Weather Service in San Diego has issued a flash flood watch in effect from 11 am this morning through this evening.

A very moist air mass will remain over the mountains and deserts east of interstate 15 today with scattered showers and thunderstorms through early evening.

Excessive runoff from heavy downpours may cause rapid filling and overflowing of normally dry washes and small creeks and low lying areas. In addition there is a threat of rock and mud slides below steep terrain in the mountains and recently burned areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued.
