NOAA is predicting 7-10″ rain through mid-next week (22nd), flood warnings in the foothills and 7-10′ of snow in the Sierras above 7,000′, beginning Friday with a 20% chance of rain tonight. The Pineapple Express aimed at California is hooking-up with a low spinning out of the Gulf of Alaska. We’ve received .37″ over the past 48 hours as a precursor to this event that is consistent with our 30-day cycle set up in October and November. I am expecting lower low temperatures than forecast around the 25th that may bring snow instead of rain.
It’s really too wet to do much other than prepare for what’s coming.
