Update: Flash Flood Watch Issued For Sierra Nevada

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the Sierra Nevada, through Monday evening.

Moisture from Tropical Storm Dolores, in the eastern Pacific, will continue to spread northward into the Sierra Nevada through Monday evening. The main threat area will be above 4000 feet.

Slow moving thunderstorms with heavy downpours will bring the potential for flash flooding including mud and debris flows to the watch area.

Recent burn scar areas will be vulnerable to flash flooding.

There is a chance that on Tuesday the same area may once again experience intense heavy rainfall from thunderstorms.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. Outdoor recreationalists should be prepared to move to higher ground should threatening weather approach.
