First Alert Weather Alert ends, showers linger

Even though the bulk of the rain has ended, wash flooding here in the Valley remains a issue and will through tonight. Drive with caution! Turn around, don't drown! And don't ignore road closure signs.


As the rain tapers off this morning, we'll continue to add to rainfall totals. Rainfall totals for the Valley thus far as of 10 a.m. December 24th:

Isolated gusts of 50 mph possible through this afternoon, especially in areas north of the I-10. Winds look to maintain strength in our most wind-prone areas for Saturday.


Following this storm, a series of weak troughs will linger near the California coast, so we could see periods of showers through the weekend. This will be more likely for areas west of the valley. There are more opportunities for rain next week. Because of the potential for gusty winds, a Wind Advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. tonight for the mountains.

A Winter Storm Watch is up for the Mountains overnight Christmas Day into Sunday until 10 a.m. due to the potential for snow above 5,000' as the next front moves through.

Cool conditions prevail for next week, with periodic chances for showers lingering.
