Winds Increase, Flash Flood Watch Issued For The Coachella Valley

The watch is in effect from midnight Tuesday evening to late Wednesday night for the entire Coachella Valley.

High winds predicted Tuesday and Wednesday throughout Riverside County will be accompanied by rainfall in parts of the Coachella Valley, as a trough of low pressure off the Mexican coast spills into Southern California.

The watch is in effect from midnight Tuesday evening to late Wednesday night for the entire Coachella Valley.

“Our latest thinking on precipitation is … in the Coachella Valley, .25-.50 inches. Eastern Riverside and San Bernardino County mountains (could have) snowfall of 2-4 inches above 5,500 feet.”

A flash flood watch is in effect from midnight Tuesday evening to late Wednesday night for the entire Coachella Valley.

“The showers will be heaviest Wednesday afternoon,” according to an NWS statement. “There is even a slight chance of thunderstorms.”

Temperatures are returning to seasonal norms over the next few days, with highs in the Riverside metropolitan area hovering around 70 until Friday, when the mercury will only reach about 63 degrees, according to the Weather Service. Lows will be in the mid 40s.

A red flag warning is in effect through 10 p.m. Tuesday for the Inland Empire, and a high wind watch is in effect in western Riverside County until 10 p.m. Wednesday.
