Wet Weather Returns!

Dec 1, 2014 8:41 PM by Kris Kuyper

After a wet weekend, today was a break in-between storms. Most Valley locations saw about 1" of rain this past weekend, while the higher elevations saw 1" to 2". Our next storm looks bigger.

Low pressure in the Pacific is pulling in a big batch of subtropical moisture towards southern California. They'll get soaked tomorrow with much-needed rain. We won't see that part of the storm, but we'll have to deal with the low itself, which should generate plenty of rain! It should move in by tomorrow afternoon and last through Wednesday, soaking us good. The Valley should see 1" to 2" of rain, with double that possible in the mountains. This is yet another somewhat mild storm, so snow levels should remain near 5000'. Not much of a surface low with it, so winds won't be an issue at all.

It should wind down Wednesday night, and we'll get another break on Thursday and during the day Friday. Another vigorous low will target us Friday night with beneficial rain, although it won't last that long... It should be done by Saturday morning. It should soak us good Friday night, however.

Models are indicating drier weather after that for the rest of the weekend, and a chance for our temperatures to warm up a little.

But, before that happens... We've got a lot of rain coming our way!
