The National Weather Service says sub-tropical moisture "will create a favorable set up for widespread rainfall, locally heavy at times, Saturday into Saturday night."

According to the hazardous weather outlook released Wednesday, there are isolated risks of thunderstorms before the possibility of daily rounds of afternoon thunderstorms begin late Friday and continue into Saturday.

Forecasters say the main hazards from numerous showers and thunderstorms will be frequent lightning, strong and gusty winds, heavy downpours and flash flooding.

The weather service says areas recently burned by wildfires will be especially susceptible to flash floods and debris flows late Friday night into Saturday.
