National Weather Service warns of potential flooding and lightning
The National Weather Service is warning of potential flooding and lightning in our area.
Thunderstorms will develop today over inland areas of southern Oregon and northern California and continue through this evening. Thunderstorm coverage will peak during the late afternoon and early evening.
The atmosphere over the area will be much moister than normal for this time of year and that moisture, combined with slow moving thunderstorms, will make for heavy rain over the area. Flash flooding may occur and the greatest runoff threat will be near recently burned areas where debris and mud flows may occur.
Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway because the water may be too deep to allow your vehicle to pass safely.
