A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the mountain areas and deserts of San Diego County and will be in effect Monday, Sept. 21 at 11:00 a.m. until Tuesday afternoon. Low pressure and approaching moisture clouds can bring heavy rainfall of up to 1 inch for the deserts and 2 inches for the mountain areas and can cause flash flooding. The heaviest rain is expected Monday evening through Tuesday morning. Wildfire-affected areas are more susceptible to debris flows.

Other areas affected are the Coachella Valley, Riverside and San Bernardino County Mountains.
