* WHEN…From Sunday afternoon through Wednesday morning.

* IMPACTS…Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers,
creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.
Creeks and streams may rise out of their banks. Flooding may occur
in poor drainage and urban areas. Low-water crossings may be
flooded. Storm drains and ditches may become clogged with debris.
Extensive street flooding and flooding of creeks and rivers are
possible. Area creeks and streams are running high and could flood
with more heavy rain.

– Multiple rounds of moderate to heavy showers, and perhaps a
couple of thunderstorms, are expected to affect the region
from Sunday evening through Wednesday morning. Total rainfall
amounts of 2 to 5 inches are expected over the lower
elevations, with 4 to 8 inches over the foothills and
mountains. Rainfall rates may briefly exceed 1 inch per hour
in isolated locations with heavier showers and thunderstorms.
These rainfall totals and rates will have the potential to
cause flooding and debris flows including landslides.
