NEEDLES, Calif. (AP) - The National Weather Service says a very moist and unstable air mass hanging over Southern California is continuing to bring the threat of flash flooding to inland areas.

Forecasters say the most likely places for heavy rainfall and flooding Thursday will be in the mountains, deserts and far inland valleys.

Flash flood warnings have been issued for southeastern San Bernardino County along U.S. Highway 95 between Needles and Vidal Junction, and west along State Route 62 toward Twentynine Palms.

Thunderstorms spawned by persistent monsoonal flow have downed numerous trees and fences across inland Southern California this week.
