Although flash floods devastated several mountain communities in Southern California Sunday afternoon, killing one person, western Nevada County saw little rain Monday — although more was expected into the night Tuesday. The expected storm system lost quite a bit of its energy as it meandered over Nevada and eastern California with little direction, according to Giovanni Paredes of Nevada County Weather.

“It’s still going to rain, but we are not expecting to see flash flooding,” he said Monday on his Facebook page. Paredes said any accumulation was not expected to exceed a tenth of an inch of rain.

According to the National Weather Service, there was a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms today.

It was expected to be mostly cloudy, with a high near 77 degrees, and new rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, with higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Tonight, the weather service is forecasting a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 11 p.m.

The sun will return Wednesday, with a high near 85 degrees.
