Special Weather Statement for Orange County Coastal Areas, CA ( Rain and Wind tonight )
The Weather Channel ^ | 2 am PDT, Sun., Oct. 24, 2010 | The National Weather Service San Diego, CA

Posted on 10/24/2010 8:15:27 AM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

... WET AND LOCALLY WINDY WEATHER TONIGHT INTO MONDAY...

MOISTURE ENTRAINED FROM THE REMNANTS OF TYPHOON MEGI OVER THE WEST PACIFIC WILL MOVE OVER SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY. A WEAK DISTURBANCE EMBEDDED IN STRENGTHENING NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL HELP LIFT OUR ALREADY DEEP MOIST LAYER TO PRODUCE AREAS OF RAIN OVER AND WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS TONIGHT INTO MONDAY. SHOWERS WILL TAPER OFF MONDAY AFTERNOON AND MAINLY BE OVER THE MOUNTAINS.

RAINFALL TOTALS SHOULD RANGE FROM AROUND ONE TENTH OF AN INCH ALONG THE COAST... TO ABOUT THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH ON COASTAL MOUNTAIN SLOPES. HOWEVER... AMOUNTS CLOSE TO AN INCH ARE POSSIBLE WHERE OROGRAPHIC LIFT IS MAXIMIZED. THE SNOW LEVEL WILL BE ABOVE 8000 FEET.

WINDS ALOFT AND ONSHORE FLOW WILL CAUSE LOCAL STRONG GUSTY WINDS IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS LATE TODAY THROUGH MONDAY. MOST WIND GUSTS WILL BE 25 TO 35 MPH BUT THERE WILL BE ISOLATED GUSTS TO NEAR 50 MPH... MAINLY IN THE HIGH DESERTS.

THE RAIN WILL MAKE ROADS SLICK AND MOTORISTS SHOULD USE EXTRA CAUTION. FOG WILL LOCALLY REDUCE VISIBILITY TO LESS THAN A QUARTER OF A MILE AT TIMES IN THE MOUNTAINS. THE STRONG GUSTY WINDS IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS WILL MAKE DRIVING DIFFICULT... ESPECIALLY FOR MOTORISTS WITH HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES.

Tis the season.

Just north of you, in the Sacramento/San Joaquin Valley, tradition holds that the first rain in the high country usually occurs about the 3rd week in October and the basin is shrouded in Tule fog for 90 days, starting about November 15.

Small amounts on the Freeways turn them into the equivalent of icy streets....that is the deal.

To amplify Ernest_at_the_Beach’s point:

A tenth of an inch is enough to raise all the oils and slick dust on the freeways to the surface, but not enough to rinse them clean.

The first light rain of the season is much more dangerous than a good rain.

Tork_on_the_Mud Flats of Humboldt Bay reporting in Sir...

Rain gauge showed 2/10 inch at 10:30 last night. At 6 this morning it held 2 3/4 inches and still a lite rain is falling

Depending on the reporting site, we have close to or over 1 inch of rain.

The good news is the Drought Nazis really don’t have a job again.

One of our local Drought Nazis was on her soap box last week re water conservation.

I asked her why she like winter floods and pushed an agenda that created/left too much water in our lakes/streams/rivers.

She came close to stroking out.

You can bet the fishing on our northcoast rivers are blown out for awhile. My grandson went deer hunting this morning over near Hayfork. Hope he looks out for rocks on the roads...

It's been raining in SoCal for a couple of weeks now. It safe to drive normally in the rain, but people are still too scared of water.

I’ll say, driving at 45 in the far left lane is the pits

I realize rain and wind must seem to be a big deal to places that don't get rain and wind. But come on...it's rain and wind! Just a couple of nights ago we had rain and strong wind...we call them "thunderstorms" and we've probably had somewhere around 50 or 60 of them this year. And they have electricity that forms in big streaks called LIGHTNING. And this lightning makes really really loud noises we call THUNDER.

And that's not including RAINSTORMS. Which have rain and usually strong winds.

And in the winter cold white stuff (SNOW) falls from the sky and accumulates. And again this is almost always accompanied by strong winds.

Oh and sometimes we even have THUNDERSNOW! Snowstorms with thunder and lightning and wind! Horror!

I'm just giving you a little grief....:-)

Well,...I remember some years in Kansas City when we went over 60 inches of rain....

We had a wet winter a few years ago and one of the recording stations up above downtown LA had 90 inches....and it all rolled downhill!

Created a heck of a mess.

This weather has the grape pickers working like banshees to save as much of the crop as they can.. expect higher napa valley wine prices.. the deck is dry but a big glob is working its way southward on the radar...

That funny cold white stuff belongs in a blender with fruit juices and rum ... not on the ground ☺
