Skip to comments.Train of Storms Takes Aim at California First
Posted on 02/19/2010 3:27:04 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach
A train of storms is on the tracks in the Pacific
The onslaught will begin this
In a singular sense, the storms will not have the power and the outcome of the storms in January. However, enough rain will fall to lead to urban flooding problems, mudslides and perhaps a few washouts.
Enough snow is in store to again grace the Sierra and other ranges in the Southwest with heavy snow and fresh powder.
While it appears rain will fall in Tejon and Cajon passes with both storms this weekend, rain and fog will still slow travel over these arteries, and snow will fall in Donner Pass.
As a result of the two storms this weekend, expect flight delays, street flooding and disruptions to plans.
Since the storm train is likely to continue right through next week with a storm hitting every day-and-a-half or so, the cumulative effect could approach the problems experienced in the Golden State earlier in the winter.

Sun is shining right now...change is coming they say.
There will be some mud slides, outside of that it’s just water and we will get a little wet coming and going from our car.
We have to worry far more about the big one or some terrorist on a ship blowing a nuke a mile off shore IMO.
Maybe it wii produce a “Revenue STREAM”
I.E. has had clouds since late yesterday. Batten down the hatches...here we go again.
Bring it on baby
Wii = Will.
I'm with you...
Do ya think? I’ve heard so much pro-con on this crazy storm...lol.Depends on which meterologist you listen to..lol
It is currently very cloudy here in Eagle Rock, and windy. We will see!
Anyone alert Algore yet?
If California is still saying they have a critical drought this year, it's not for lack for water but too many people instead.
We had a week of springlike temps recently and the lawn was acting like it was coming out of hibernation. People starting to wear shorts in public when the temps finally hit the low 60s. Now I'm looking at shoveling the driveway again.
Watch your tongue young man. We got Nascar racin at Fontana and the Cup Cars are qualifying on Speed channel as I post this...
Why thank you...welcome aboard. :)
I knows I will be at the track in the Napa Suite with my wife on Saturday
speaking of stream i gotta go take a leak
Just turned on the weather channel,...they are saying we have evacuations going again in the same areas evacuated with th last storm...
Have you heard anything?
Joe Bastardi works for AccuWeather. When he says “It’s On!” I’m ready to get out my slicker.
They say rain in the morning,...not heavy though,...Cloudy on Sunday.
Where’s the conductor for this train?
Somewhere off shore,...LOL!
Good ol’ Accuweather. Make it sound as treacherous and foreboding as possible in the graphix!
I've always had a thing about this "son of the father entitlement" biz in competition.......
STORMWATCH!!!! Stay tuned - news at 11
Zowie!!! Guess so!!! I’ll go pull my radar site up and prepare!! LOL
There were a few drops this morning. It has been cloudy all day where I am at.
My husband just told me that they are beginning to evacuate again. I will email my friend who lives up there above Foothill Blvd and see what’s what!
I think he would be doing much better if he were not a son of...
OK,...I don’t follow NASCAR at all...who is that?
I had sunshine most of the afternoon.
That is Dale Earnhardt son of the Man in Black...
WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!

A stormy pattern has settled back in over the West Coast. This means that storm after storm will beleaguer the region through much of the upcoming week.
The first system in the train of storms brought rain to central and Southern
Another round of wet weather and mountain snow will target the Golden State on Sunday. This system will bring steady rain over the majority of the state by Sunday night.
The storms will continue crashing ashore every day and a half or so through the end of next week.
With the persistent bouts of rain taking aim at the area, flooding could become a problem in urban areas. Mudslides will also pose a threat in recent wildfire burn areas.
Thansk for the Ping, Ernest. Today it's a little chilly here but the skies are blue and the clouds are beautiful.
Of course it can get nasty directly under them.
The weather out here is so different!
