Helaine saw the hashtag #stormageddon touted on TV a few minutes ago. SoCal is bracing… again. Is there some weird secret competition with the East on weather?
“Yeah… well… rain!”
Actually this storm looks very un-SoCalish. The radar from Vandenberg AFB shows a squall line out front. The HRRR agrees. The squalls remain intact as the line slides down the coast. Embedded thunderstorms are entirely possible.
We’ll have rain most of the day Friday though the bulk falls between 4-7 AM. We’re right on the 3-hour flash flood line, again. I expect some flooding. Homes in burn areas will be threatened by mudslides. A few inches of rain probable through this region.
If there’s snow for our two nearby tall peaks it will happen late in the storm. My second winter and no white so far.
Father north, San Francisco proper has gotten 2-4″ of rain with some windward mountainsides getting over 7″.
So far, this is the awful winter everyone was praying for!
