Yeah, we are going to have some water falling from the sky in So Cal tomorrow and next week too. Last week we had more than 3/4" rain in 2 days and that was more than the whole raining season of last year.
Winter temperature is coming to California too, high in Irvine/Lake Forest is in mid 60's the next 10 days and low drops to mid to high 40's.
In the Santa Cruz mountains our 4" rain gauge overflowed this morning, and it's almost full again. This is after at least 12" of rain over the last week.
Currently our power is out, but cable internet is still working with the UPS.
I've seen much worse storms on the east coast, but in California there is always a mini-disaster. After three years of very dry weather and no stressful storms, every tree over a power line or near a road is planning its fall. Dry stream beds have grown over with bushes and small trees to create dams. Storm drains have clogged, or been mistakenly filled in.
Normally, Northern California has more rain fall than Southern California.
Last 2-3 years we had less than 5-6 light shower days a year in Irvine, it didn't even wet the driveway, total accumulation for the whole season was less than 1".
