It looks like Yosemite National Park is bracing itself for the possibility that this weekend's rainstorms may flood Yosemite Valley.
The Fresno Bee reported:
Yosemite Valley could be flooded by storms expected to hit the central San Joaquin Valley and Sierra Nevada on Friday and Saturday.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Hanford are anticipating the Merced River to rise above the Pohono Bridge in Yosemite Valley.
