First Alert Weather Alert issued for threat of flash flooding

The First Alert Weather Team issued a First Alert Weather Alert for Tuesday and Wednesday for the risk of flash flooding for nearby communities.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for Riverside and San Bernardino County mountains, including the San Gorgonio Pass and Apple and Lucerne Valleys, through Wednesday evening. The Coachella Valley is included within the watch.

Rainfall from last night's storms was minimal here in the low desert despite heavy rain elsewhere.

Dew points are still very high, so the potential for storms and flash flooding will remain with us through the evening hours.

As with yesterday, it's still possible for storms to move across Arizona through the afternoon hours and into California deserts tonight.

If you encounter a flooded roadway, Turn Around; Don't Drown. It doesn't take a lot of water to sweep a person or vehicle away. Plus, hidden dangers like power lines or other debris may not be visible be under the water.

There may be some isolated mountain storms into Thursday, but monsoonal moisture will retreat to the east for the end of the week. Its comeback will be quick with another surge expected on Sunday.
