Flash Flood CaliforniaFlash Flood California, Afternoon thunderstorms drenched many parts of southwestern California, leaving more than an inch of rain in the desert communities and causing some flooding.

Forecasters said a mass of air very humid subtropical Thursday destabilized the atmosphere, allowing rain and thunderstorms to develop.

The National Weather Service in San Diego said at least one inch of rain fell on Joshua Tree National Park and the desert east of Borrego Springs in just one hour.

Flash flood watches were issued for the mountains of Kern, Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego, and desert areas such as antelope, Apple, Indian Wells, Lucerne and Coachella valleys.

The weather service says rains and thunderstorms are likely in the mountains and deserts Friday afternoon and evening.
