* A portion of central California, including the following
areas, Kern County Mountains, Mariposa, Madera, and Fresno
County Foothills, Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to Kings Canyon,
Tulare County Foothills, and Tulare County Mountains.
* Through 8:00 PM PDT this evening.
* Heavy rainfall in addition to snow melt will create excess
runoff and bring a threat of localized flash flooding, mud
slides, rock slides and debris flows, particularly in the
vicinity of the Detwiler and Pier fire burn scars. Some roads
may become impassable or become washed out. Residents should
be alert for rising waters on area streams with the
possibility of flooding.
* Rocks have already been reported on Highway 190 in the Pier
Fire Burn area. Additional slides and debris are possible.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
