    Fresno County Foothills, and Sierra Nevada from Yosemite to
    Kings Canyon.
    * Until 2 PM PDT this afternoon
    * Heavy rainfall in addition to snow melt will create excess
    runoff and bring a threat of localized flash flooding, mud
    slides, rock slides and debris flows, particularly in the
    vicinity of the Detwiler fire burn scar. In addition, rainfall
    runoff will allow for sharp rises in the Merced, San Joaquin and
    possibly Kings River Saturday morning and continue throughout
    the morning and early afternoon. The rise in the rivers, as
    well as local creeks, streams and canals, could produce
    localized flooding near their banks, especially in the Yosemite
    Valley.
    * Some roads may become impassable or become washed out.
    Residents should be alert for rising waters on area streams
    with the possibility of flooding.
