Flash Flood Watch Issued For Riverside And San Bernardino Counties
The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch starting Thursday morning for Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Record rainfall fell on parts of the Inland Empire Tuesday, including Palm Springs.
A series of powerful downpours tapered off Wednesday for much of Southern California. But NWS meteorologist Joe Sirard advised residents to keep an umbrella handy for the next week or so.
"It looks like over the weekend, another storm system is going to come down from the north... and start bringing showers into the area," he said. "What that means for us is that we're going to have increasing amounts of rain across the area, especially by later Monday, Tuesday into Wednesday."
Snow levels are expected to drop next Tuesday in our local mountain ranges from the San Gabriel to San Bernardino mountains. Forecasters warn the snow could impact travel.
