There are reports of 174 and 195 mph wind gusting at Sierra ski resorts (approx 9,000 ft ASL) with average around 100 mph.

WOW!  That's incredible!  I'm seeing a lot of reports of downed trees and powerlines, and street flooding around here. 

I just discovered a nice resource from Iowa State University that you may find useful.  They are always coming up with some great stuff.  You can select by state or WFO to see the current situation of rivers around you.

That's a good link Harry  :)

The wind suddenly arrived here around noon. When we see gusting around 40 mph it usually means a lot of power outages  :roll:

Good info on his website.  I tried his Twitter feed and it said I was blocked.  Strange that.  Don't know why that would be, oh well.

The rain has finally ended here for now.  The front has moved to the south.  Now we are getting ready for the next storm with a new round of advisories.  And if all the wind and rain wasn't bad enough, we going to have the King Tide to contend with which could cause coastal flooding.  Whoopee!   :(

That's good for the snowpack  :)  AIUI yesterday's Reno floods were triggered by the rain being warmer and melting snowpack.

Today we have much wind but only recorded .77" so far. That may be understated due to it being close to horizontal  :lol:

I'm pushing the inch mark already with .98" with a lot more rain to go.  I thought they said this storm wasn't supposed to be as bad as the last one.  Ha!  This just in:

a

The front for this storm finally went through at 7:49 pm with one last gasp of a gust of 32 mph.  The baro bottomed out at 29.67 in and is now rising.  The wind has gone down and changed direction to the SW.

40 mph gusts (high for us) and 29.46 here. Looking forward to a quiet couple of days now  :)

Trivial by the standards of other parts of the country I know  :roll:  but exciting for us California weather wimps  :lol:
