The National Weather Service predicts, in its usual self-important (yet appreciated!) “caps” style:
“A POTENT STORM TRACK IS NOW SETUP TO UNLEASH SEVERAL WAVES OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA DURING THE WEEK AHEAD. A RELATIVELY WEAK SYSTEM IS SPREADING RAINFALL OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA NOW. HOWEVER…INDICATIONS ARE STILL ON TRACK FOR A SERIES OF SYSTEMS THAT ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE IN INTENSITY AS THE WEEK UNFOLDS. IF THIS SCENARIO HOLDS…BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON SOME COASTAL RANGE LOCATIONS COULD AMASS UP TO 15 INCHES OF RAIN WITH 5 TO 10 INCHES COMMON ELSEWHERE…”
I live near a slough, in a “wet” and humid area. So what this means to me is that I need to be on the lookout for flooding, even with moderate rainfall. And although the rain hasn’t been very hard, already the lights have flickered on and off a couple times.
