The Flood Watch continues for

* A portion of central California, including the following
  areas, East Central San Joaquin Valley, Mariposa, Madera, and
  Fresno County Foothills, Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to Kings
  Canyon, Tulare County Foothills, Tulare County Mountains, and
  West Central San Joaquin Valley.

* Through Tuesday morning

* A strong storm system will continue to bring periods of
  excessive rainfall to central California overnight and
  Tuesday morning.

* The combination of already wet soils and moderate to heavy
  rain could lead to excessive runoff. Flooding of small
  streams, low water crossings and poor drainage areas will be
  possible. Mud and rock slides in areas of higher terrain are
  also possible.


A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
