FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH WEDNESDAY EVENING.

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has expanded the Flash Flood Watch to include Santa Barbara County Mountains through Wednesday evening.

Monsoonal moisture will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms to the area. Some thunderstorms may produce intense downpours which could lead to flash flooding. 

Of particular concern for flash flooding will be locations in and below the Whittier and Alamo burn areas. 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: 

A Flash Flood Watch means that the threat of flash flooding exists along rivers and creeks and low lying areas. If you are in the watch area, you should monitor the weather conditions closely. Flash flooding and debris flows will be a particular threat in and below the recently burned areas. 

Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. Be ready to move to higher ground if flooding is observed or a Warning is issued. Stay tuned to weather radio for further updates.
