The National Weather Service in Las Vegas has issued a

  Owens Valley, and White Mountains of Inyo County. In Nevada,
  Esmeralda and Central Nye County, Spring Mountains-Red Rock
  Canyon, and Western Clark and Southern Nye County.

* From late tonight through Monday evening

* Very moist rich air will move into eastern California tonight
  into Monday. Storms forming in this environment may drop very
  heavy rain in very short periods of time, leading to areas of
  flash flooding.

* Locally heavy rainfall will likely result in flash flooding of
  washes and poor drainage areas. Burn scars from wildfires will
  be especially prone to flash flooding and debris flows. Parts of
  Death Valley are especially vulnerable to flash flooding.


A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may become favorable
for flooding of washes...streams and other drainage areas in the
watch area. If you are in the watch should closely
monitor weather forecasts and be prepared to take immediate
action should heavy rain and flooding occur or a flash flood
warning is issued.
