A storm system will continue to bring heavy rain into California through Saturday.  The rainfall could lead to flash flooding and mudslides.  Here is the very latest:

Flooding Alerts

Most of the heavy rain in the burn scar areas has ended, but will still need to be watched closely for additional rain this weekend. Urban flooding and burn scar debris flows may occur.


Rainfall Potential

4 to 8 inches of rain has fallen already this week in parts of California. There is the potential for 2 to 4 inches of additional rainfall in the northern sections of California into Oregon. Even with lighter totals further south, areas near the Thomas and Woolsey fire burn scar will have be award of changing conditions if heavy rain takes place and debris flows begin.
