With several thunderstorms over the Coachella Valley, the National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for San Diego’s mountains and deserts.
“Residual moisture and midday heating along the higher terrain is likely to drive strong thunderstorm development though early this evening,” the weather service warned in a bulletin at 1:45 p.m.
The flash flood watch remains in effect until 8 p.m. and covers parts of Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties.
The weather service said areas in and below recent wildfire burns will be particularly susceptible to heavy water runoff and debris flows.
