Flood watches are widespread in Southern California, and extend into portions of western and central Arizona. Rainfall amounts in the mountains of Ventura County in Southern California are approaching 14 inches in some locations. Winter storm warnings remain in effect for the mountains from Ventura County to Riverside County, and for the mountains in Kern County and Death Valley National Park. Snowfall may reach 1 to 2 feet in the higher elevations of the warned areas. Mountain winds may reach 60 to 70 mph overnight in Southern California. Rain and mountain snow continues to press eastward through southern Nevada, southern Utah and Arizona. Winter storm warnings have also been posted for the higher elevations of southern Nevada, southwestern Utah and northern Arizona. Rain will change to snow around the Grand Canyon and Flagstaff, while Phoenix will have to deal with rain and thunderstorms on Wednesday.
