The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* A portion of central California, including the following areas,

  County Foothills, Sierra Nevada from Tulare County north to
  Yosemite National Park below 7000 feet, Tulare County Foothills, and
  West Central San Joaquin Valley below 7000 feet.

* From tonight through Tuesday morning

* An incoming strong storm system will bring a period of excessive
  rainfall to central California. The heaviest rainfall will occur
  early Monday morning through Monday night.

* 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.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
