Thunderstorms are in the forecast again Monday for the deserts and mountains.

Meteorologist Stephen Harrison said we could be in for some wet weather through Tuesday afternoon.

“Winds won’t be too strong, so some of the thunderstorms are expected to remain over one spot for a longer amount of time and that may induce flash flooding," he said.

The National Weather Service has a flash flood watch for Southern California valleys and mountains from 10a.m. through 8 p.m. Monday night.

The Weather Service advised highs Monday will be between 87 and 96 degrees in the Inland Empire, mid-70s to mid-80s in the mountains and between 91 and 96 degrees in the Coachella Valley.
