...Thunderstorms with a Heavy Rain Risk Today...

* Thunderstorms will develop this afternoon and evening, most
  numerous near and east of Highway 395. There is a 25 to 50
  percent chance of any one point seeing a storm in this area,
  with a 10 to 15 percent chance for areas to the west.

* Another round of heavy rains is possible with simulations
  indicating the potential for 1-2 inches per hour from any storms
  that develop. These rates would result in renewed flash flooding
  threats, especially on recent burn scars.

* People living in flood prone areas or near these recent burn
  scars should monitor the forecast and be prepared to take action
  should heavy rains occur or a flash flood warning be issued.
