SAN DIEGO – A flash flood watch has been issued for the East County valleys, mountains and deserts Monday because of the possibility of heavy rain and thunderstorms from a late summer storm.

The flash flood watch from the National Weather Service is scheduled to take effect at 11 a.m. and extend until Tuesday afternoon. Although the San Diego coast was not included in the watch, FOX 5 weathercaster Chrissy Russo said showers, thunderstorms and humidity are likely there as well. Temperatures along the coast will likely push into the low 80s, with inland temperatures hitting the high 80s, Russo said.

Different forecast models are predicting very different outcomes, Russo said. Once scenario shows no rain falling on San Diego County Monday, but another predicts up to 0.75 inches falling along the coast and up to 1.5 inches in the mountains, she said. The heaviest rain is likely to fall Monday afternoon, she said.

Forecasters with the NWS predicted rainfall in excess of an inch in the deserts and the inland valleys, and more than two inches in the mountains. The heaviest rain was likely to fall between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, according to the NWS.

Forecasters said drier conditions would prevail later this week as high pressure builds over the southwest.

    “Different forecast models are predicting very different outcomes, Russo said.”

    I hope everyone understands that these people are all charlatans. Not hey know nothing about forecasting weather. Seriously, when is the last time they got it right?

    The only thing they do is look half-way cute while telling us what happened yesterday.

    My grandma is a better weather forecaster that all of these bimbos put together. If she looked as good in tight shirts and fake boobs, I’d have her apply and do it right.

    We miss you, John Coleman…
