Flash flood warnings, flash flood watch in effect

SAN DIEGO - Continued muggy was the extended forecast countywide as flash flood warnings and a flash flood watch remained in effect Saturday.

A flash flood warning was issued for east central San Diego County and will remain in effect until 6:15 p.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. A flash flood warning was also issued for northeastern San Diego County, including the city of Borrego Springs. It will remain in effect until 6:30 p.m.

A flash flood watch is in effect with thunderstorms possible in the mountains and deserts until 6 p.m.

"Humid weather will probably hang in there for the next few days with shower activity at times in the mountains and deserts," NWS forecaster Mike Watkins said.

Watkins said humidity and temperatures were both higher than normal for this time of year.

The weather forecaster warned campers and vacationers in outlying areas to be wary of stormy conditions.

"Don't trust the thunderstorms. They can drop a lot of rain and cause a lot of lightning if you're in or near them," Watkins said. "People need to keep an eye on thunderstorms, be prepared to take preventative action if there are any in their area."
