Weather service predicts thunderstorms

Scattered thunderstorms are expected Sunday afternoon and evening in the mountains, deserts and eastern inland valleys, the National Weather Service reports.

Excessive runoff from the expected storms could cause normally dry washes, creeks, small streams and low-lying areas to quickly fill and overflow, the NWS said.

NWS officials also reported an additional threat of rock and mud slides below steep mountain terrain and in recently burned areas. A flash flood watch will remain in effect until 7 p.m.
