National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Flash Flood Watch from Sunday, 3/27/2022 7:00 PM to Monday, 3/28/2022 6:00 AM PDT for the Colorado and Dolan Fire burn scars along the Big Sur Coast.

Heavy rainfall could trigger flash flooding of low-lying areas, urbanized street flooding, and debris flows in and near recent wildfire burn scars. Storm drains and ditches may become clogged with debris. There is potential for power outages and slides across Highway 1–drive with caution.

(NOTE: MCOES titled this a Flash Flood “Warning,” but the NWS calls it a ”Watch” which means to be aware of the possibility, whereas ”Warning” means it is imminent. It is not imminent at this point, but may become so at 7 pm tonight.)

  1. Thank-you, Kate. So great to have this unexpected rainfall, but hoping it does not become excessive. Peace to you!

  2. I hope someone “has sense enough to go out into the rain” and get some photos. Especially Rat Canyon.
