Monsoonal thunderstorms bring flood risk to local mountains

Thunderstorms are making their way south from San Bernardino County into Riverside County. Be aware of ponding of water on low-lying roadways, especially out towards Rice Road and Desert Center.

A Flood Watch will remain in place for San Bernardino and Riverside County mountains until 7:00 p.m. When encountering a flooded road, turn around; don't drown.

Dew point temperatures were in the 70s this afternoon creating the "soupy" feel when you step outside. Monsoon moisture will continue to flow into the Desert Southwest though it will be slightly drier on Tuesday.

A moist atmosphere remains in our forecast this week meaning thunderstorm chances will continue for local mountains and the High Desert into Tuesday and beyond.

Temperatures look to return to the triple digits Tuesday afternoon with warming in place into the middle of the week.
