Good Thursday morning,

The good news for flooding, the system moved through faster and has underperformed.

The heaviest rain is now in the LA area, with showers for us for the rest of the day. There should be another wave that will hit us late morning with heavier rain.

Rain totals have been less with around 2 inches in the past 24 hours coastal and around 4 inches in the mountains. still good rain in total, but filling the lakes is the goal.

Today showers all day, but this afternoon we should see some peaks of the sun. Everything clears out tonight, and Friday will be a dry day. https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/lox/scripts/getlocal.php?prod=LAXRRMSBA current rain totals

Friday will be a dry day, and Saturday during the day, but more rain Saturday night. This is a weaker system with 1/2 inch coastal and 1 inch in the mountains.

The great news is we are on the storm track for the next 10 days through next weekend. More rain Monday night and this might be another strong system.

Looking deeper into the extended forecast there is another storm later in the week. Needless to say, all the rain of late is keeping the ground saturated and creeks flowing.

This is great news for the lake levels, it will just take a little longer to fill them, but with continued rain, it is good news.

On a side note, Northern California has been getting hammered. Snowpack is 171% of normal for this time of year.

This is great news for runoff later in the season and water supplies.

Enjoy the rain!
