California, Eastern Sierra Slopes of Inyo County

Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:40 AM PDT on July 30, 2015

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on July 30, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast California and southern Nevada... including
the following areas... in southeast California... Cadiz
basin... Death Valley National Park... eastern Mojave
Desert... eastern Sierra slopes... morongo basin... Owens
Valley... western Mojave Desert and White Mountains of Inyo County.
In southern Nevada... southern Clark County and the Spring
Mountains-Red Rock Canyon.

* Through this evening.

* Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across
portions of southeast California and far southern Nevada on
Thursday especially from the mid-morning hours into the early
evening hours.

* Any stronger or slower moving thunderstorms could unleash 1 to
2 inches of rainfall... with locally higher amounts possible in
an hour or less. This could lead to flash flooding especially
if it falls over any low lying areas or in a wash or canyon
that quickly moves water to a lower area.

* Impacts... roads could be closed due to water flowing over them as
well as mud and rocks washing onto them. Roadway pavement may be
washed away. Some dirt and secondary gravel roads could be washed
out. Rapid rises in washes could also occur leading to flash
flooding downstream. Any burn areas... such as the CArpenter 1 burn
area on Mt Charleston... could also see debris flows take place if
heavy rain falls on or runs onto the burned landscape.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
