CBS2/KCAL9 Rich Fields Reporting:
12:50 P.M. UPDATE
We will have a continued chance of more scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day today as a center of low pressure has moved over southern California.
A flash flood watch (FFW) is still in effect for most all of Los Angeles County.
The FFW also extends to Ventura and Santa Barbara counties as well.
Our threat of severe weather will persist though the day today and in to this evening. Stay tuned to CBS2 & KCAL9 for live updates should the weather threaten any further.
10:30 A.M. UPDATE
A low pressure system has moved into the area bringing with it showers and thunderstorms.
Because of the precipitation, the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for portions of Los Angeles County from the Santa Monica Mountain recreational area north to Kern County.
This flash flood watch will be in effect until later tonight.
A flash flood watch means that the potential exists for heavy rains to create flash flooding in the next 6 to 24 hours. This FFW is also in effect for portions of Santa Barbara County and most of Ventura county.
Stay tuned to CBS2 & KCAL9 for live updates should they be warranted.
