Amazing!  That certainly wouldn't be my idea of a good time.  We have another chance of heavy rain tonight and then it is supposed to be clear cool the rest of the week.

Surprise, surprise!

An EF0 tornado touched down in a Sacramento neighborhood early Wednesday morning, causing a minor amount of damage. According to the National Weather Service, the tornado struck the South Natomas neighborhood near Rio Terra Avenue and Northgate Blvd. shortly after midnight. The tornado lasted for less than five minutes. The tornado led to several downed trees, while other trees were stripped of their limbs. Fences were also downed because of the tornado, and two metal awnings were twisted and torn down. There are no reports of injuries.

The Sacramento valley is a flat wide plain and those counties do get a few each year. Anything more than an EF0 is very rare.

Looks like we are going to get a break for a few days however, we may be in for more rain next week.  At least it will let the ground dry out a little bit and the rivers to go down.  I have to think that all this rain and snow will put a big dent in our drought.

Good video here:

that is one of the reasons that I moved from Calif to Idaho. Lots of water here many rivers to fish. when the ground is not covered with snow (as it is now) green lawns all over. Born in Calif and lived there all of my life until 2013.

I agree Chuck, in many ways it is nice there, but I can't take moving again, and those single digit temps just don't do it for me either  :lol:

Here we go again.  You can stop the rain dances now.

Widespread flooding to blast California with latest barrage of storms

Three storms will hit California and the southwestern United States into early next week with travel disruptions from flooding and mountain snow.

While the rain will not come at once, each storm will be packed with moisture and will lead to travel difficulties for motorists and potential delays for airline passengers.

0.57in rain and 25mph gust here now for #1.  #3 storm on Sunday expected to be the biggest of this series.

We've had 12 days of rain in January for 10.14in so far.  That makes it 147% of 'normal' for this time.  If it didn't rain any more this water year, we'd end up at  78% overall, but there's more to come :)

Only 7.8" for Jan so far but 26.82" ytd. We've had 4 consistently rainy months starting with 7.4" in October and that's quite unusual.

#2 came barreling through here around 2:00 am.  The baro bottomed out at 29.30" at around 6:30 am but, it looks like the low has stalled or just taking it's sweet time moving off because as of 2:23 pm the baro is sitting at 29.32".  Anyway, it looks like #3 is going to be a real barn burner, flash flood watches and high wind watches have been posted already.


From the latest AFD:
Quote
The next system in this series remains on track to impact the
area from late Saturday into Sunday morning. This system appears
to have a deeper moisture tap with PWAT values forecast to range
between 1 to 1.25 inches. Given this, expecting rainfall amounts
to be greater than the previous two systems which will likely
lead to a greater threat for flooding issues. Additional rainfall
amounts from Saturday into Sunday will range from 0.75 to 1.25
inches in most urban areas and upwards of 2 inches in the North
Bay Valleys. Meanwhile, the coastal ranges and North Bay Mountains
will likely see 2 to 4 inches with isolated amounts upwards of 6
inches.
