TULARE AND SOUTHWESTERN FRESNO COUNTIES...

At 415 AM PDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause

rates of one quarter to one half an inch of rain will be possible.
Breezy conditions ahead of the rain band may make for hazardous
travel.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Fresno, Visalia, Clovis, Tulare, Porterville, Hanford, Delano, Wasco,
Corcoran, Lemoore, Sanger, Reedley, Selma, Dinuba, Avenal, Orosi,
Parlier, Kerman, Coalinga and Earlimart.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

...A FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 545 AM PDT MONDAY FOR
NORTHEASTERN MARIPOSA...NORTHEASTERN MADERA...TUOLUMNE AND NORTH
CENTRAL FRESNO COUNTIES...

At 408 AM PDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated an
area of very heavy rainfall across the warned area. Rainfall rates
of .6 to .7 inches per hour have been measured at North Fork and
Whiskey Ridge.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Yosemite South Entrance, Yosemite National, Yosemite Valley, Hetch
Hetchy Ranger Station, Merced Lake Ranger Station, El Portal,
Minarets, Red Meadow Ranger Station, Rancheria Falls Wilderness
Campground, Chilkoot Meadow, Fish Camp, Huntington Lake, Mount Tom,
Ostrander Lake, Little Yosemite Valley Ranger Station, Tuolumne
Meadows Visitor Center, Volcanic Knob, Tamarack Flat Campground,
Wawona Campground and Shaver Lake 3ne.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.

Remain alert for flooding even in locations not receiving rain.
Arroyos, streams, and rivers can become raging killer currents in a
matter of minutes, even from distant rainfall.

Move away from recently burned areas. Life threatening flooding of
creeks, roads and normally dry arroyos is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain, especially in and around these areas.

Flooding is occurring or is imminent. It is important to know where
you are relative to streams, rivers, or creeks which can become
killers in heavy rains. Campers and hikers should avoid streams or
creeks.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
