The flood warning, issued by the National Weather Service, lasts through 3:15 p.m. Friday and covers virtually all of the state's interior from Woodland north. A warning means that flooding is imminent or has already been reported.
Rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches over the Sacramento Valley and 4 to 8 inches over the mountains are expected during the period of the flood warning. Rapid rises in small streams and possible flooding along them is anticipated in some locations, especially on streams feeding the upper Sacramento River in the area of Red Bluff.
