A flood warning through Friday morning was issued by the National Weather Service in Hanford due to a storm that will impact central California.
The weather service said the flood warning is in effect through Friday night and covers the central San Joaquin Valley floor and foothills.
Meanwhile, Yosemite National Park also warned its visitors to delay their visits to the park until after noon on Friday.
The advisory is in anticipation of the same storm system moving through the central San Joaquin Valley that could bring heavy rain and force road closures.
About 6:30 p.m. Thursday, the weather service showed rain approaching Fresno. The weather service said lightning and flooding were possible with the storm expected overnight into Friday.
Yosemite National Park said water and debris could wash onto the roads.
Currently, roads into the park like El Portal Road, Wawona Road and Big Oak Flat Road are still open. For up-to-date information on travel and weather conditions, call 209-372-0200 and press 1.
The National Weather Service, meanwhile, at 7:25 p.m. Thursday called off a flood advisory for a small part of the central San Joaquin Valley near Chowchilla and LeGrand.
