Flash Flood Watch in effect for the Coachella Valley through midnight

Another round of showers is making it's way toward the Valley, so East Valley residents are likely to see a little bit more precipitation before the day is over.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until midnight. That watch covers the entire Coachella Valley, and much of San Diego and Imperial counties as well. In far Eastern Imperial County, two flash flood warnings were issued due to heavy rain and excessive runoff causing flooding along highway 78.

A High Wind Warning is also still in effect until 10 PM. Gusts have been light here in the Valley, but areas to our West have experienced significant and damaging winds.

An area of low pressure still holds sway off the Coast, but will move inland overnight.

Rainfall totals are light, but can expect up to 0.25" of potential rain today into tonight, with cool daytime highs.

Another storm system moves in by the weekend, bringing another chance of rain, and even cooler temperatures! Full team coverage this evening led by Chief Meteorologist Haley Clawson at 5 PM.
