TO THE UPPER 50`S TO NEAR 60 ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA. THIS

MOISTURE IN THE ATMOSPHERE WILL LEAD TO THE POTENTIAL OF ISOLATED
HEAVY RAINFALL TOTALS OF 2 TO 4 INCHES OF RAIN. FLOODING OF
ARROYOS...LOW WATER CROSSINGS AND SMALL STREAMS WILL BE POSSIBLE.
MOTORISTS SHOULD ALSO TAKE PRECAUTIONS FOR PONDING OF WATER ON
ROADWAYS.

RAIN CHANCES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO MOST OF
NEXT WEEK. EACH DAY WILL SEE THE POTENTIAL FOR ISOLATED HEAVY RAIN
WHICH COULD LEAD TO EXCESSIVE RUNOFF. AT THIS TIME THERE ARE NO
LARGE SCALE TRIGGERS TO HELP FOCUS THE RAIN...SO EACH DAYS
THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEPEND ON OROGRAPHICS AND AFTERNOON HEATING.
