...Wet Weather Returns to Northern California...
After a break in the wet weather on Tuesday, more rain is on the
way Wednesday and Thursday.
Rain and locally breezy southerly winds will increase over
northern California on Wednesday. Most of the rain will fall north
of Interstate 80 on Wednesday, and then will slide southward into
the Interstate 80 and Highway 50 corridor Wednesday night, and
then southward into the San Joaquin Valley on Thursday. The
heaviest rain will fall on the West Slope of the Sierra Nevada.
Rainfall amounts will range from one-half to one and a half inches
in the Valley, one to two inches over the Coastal Range, and two
to five inches over the West Slope of the Sierra.
This will be a warm storm with some runoff leading to rises in
small creeks and streams and the possibility of local flooding in
low-lying areas, and minor rock or debris flows in the foothill
and mountain areas.
Stay tuned for updates on this storm.
