June 7, 2015 (San Diego) –Tropical Cyclone Blanca is making its way north from Baja, Mexico, bringing a threat of rain and thunderstorms to Southwestern California.

The National Weather Service predicts rain is expected to begin Monday with heaviest rain in the San Diego area on Tuesday, potentially impacting the evening rush hour and also brining heavy rains over burned areas in our inland region. Mountain and high desert thunderstorms could continue into Wednesday afternoon.

Isolated thunderstorms could produce strong, erratic winds. There is also a potential for heavy downpours to produce debris flows or flash floods from burn-scarred areas and minor flooding of urban areas and small streams, says Stephen Harrison with the National Weather Service.
