California Under Flash Flood WatchSource: CNN

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for coastal and mountain areas of California Friday, fearing that recent wildfires may have left the regional susceptible to flash flooding, CNN reported Friday.

The forecast called for winds gusting to up to 30mph ahead of a storm front that could drop up to an inch of rain in urban areas and up to three inches in the mountains, according to CNN.

Southern California has had a very dry season, and it will be the first time since April 2006 that so much rain fell from a single storm.

Areas ravaged by the recent fires were of special concern because the wildfires stripped vegetation from thousands of acres, leaving the land susceptible to excessive runoff and erosion, reported CNN.
