@pdxtransitlane Winds will be strong through tonight & into Thurs. A storm train will continue into the weekend, so it may still be gusty.

 Quoting: Luisport


If that's the projected rainfall per day, CA is in for a heap of trouble.

I found a small research paper on rainfall comparisons during the 1861-2 deluge with other floods over the years.

It's a .pdf. [link to cepsym.info]

Storm Door Swings Open Overnight

After quiet weather for most of the Thanksgiving holiday, a series of storms are brewing and expected to hit the Bay Area this week...

Storm No. 1 arrives early Wednesday morning. This will be heavy on the winds and moderate on the rain. This is a Bay Area wide system that will hit the entire region. It arrives before sunrise with the strongest wind and rain hitting between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. Rain totals will be between .25 to 1.25 inch. The highest totals will be over the North Bay valleys. Rain will linger into the afternoon. Widespread Bay Area wind gusts of up to 50 mph could also bring down trees and create power outages.

Storm No. 2 will arrive Thursday and will last into Friday. It is a traditional north to south weather system with rain starting north of the Golden Gate and moving south. This system has more moisture content with as much as five inches of rain falling the North Bay. The current model projections have the flooding risk the highest on Friday. Local creeks, small rivers and streams will be at the greatest risk for quick rising water. Large Bay Area rivers could rise as much as 3 to 10 feet. There are no flood stages expected at this time. You can moniter conditions here.

Storm No. 3 is still developing, but has the potenital for even more moisture with periods of heavy rains on Saturday that could linger into Sunday. The first break in the weather will be next Monday.

The storms will also bring high surf along the coast. Probably not enough for the Mavericks surf contest to be called, but that is a possibility so stay tuned.

PG&E Tips to Prepare for Power Outages
:
• Have battery-operated flashlights and radios with fresh batteries ready. Listen for updates on storm conditions and power outages.
• If you have a telephone system that requires electricity to work (such as a cordless phone or answering machine), plan for alternate communication - have a standard telephone handset, cellular telephone or pager ready as a back up.
• Freeze plastic containers filled with water to make blocks of ice that can be placed in your refrigerator/freezer during an outage to prevent foods from spoiling.

Safety Tips
• Treat all downed power lines as if they are "live" or energized. Keep yourself and others away from them. Call 911, then notify PG&E at 1-800-743-5002.
• Use battery-operated flashlights, not candles.
• Customers with generator should make sure they are properly installed by a licensed electrician. Improperly installed generators pose a significant danger to our crews.
• Unplug or turn off all electric appliances to avoid overloading circuits and fire hazards when power is restored. Simply leave a single lamp on to alert you when power returns. Turn your appliances back on one at a time when conditions return to normal. Report a Power Outage: 1-800-743-5002
• Before calling PG&E about a power outage, check to see if other neighbors are affected. This would confirm if an outage has occurred in just your residence or within the neighborhood area.
• If only your residence is without power, check circuit breakers and/or fuse boxes to see if the problem is limited to the home electric system.
• After performing the steps above, single or neighborhood outages can be reported to: PG&E's 24-Hour Emergency and Customer Service Line: 1-800-743-5002.
• Once your outage has been reported, you can call PG&E's Outage Information Line at 1-800-743-5002 to get a status report on your outage and the anticipated time your power will be turned back on.

@abc7kristensze bay bridge workers called down away from upper levels & out of heavy equipment due to winds from today's storm.

@nbcbayarea Will winds reach 50 to 60 mph on the Bay Bridge? Meterologists say it just might.

Re: Northwest, N. Calif., Braces For More Rain and Snow!!!
Thank-you, Luisport for all your effort to keep us up to date! Much appreciated. I'm in mtns. east of Sacramento & our little, local radio station seems to be downplaying it. I guess they assume everyone has t.v. Sac stations to keep them advised but I don't so thanks for tipping me off. I rely on radio & GLP (& internet)!

I'm in one of the areas to be getting 60 mph winds & have big trees all around me so probably will loose power. Happens a lot up here. But more worried about bridge - live on a creek and have to cross an old bridge to get out so am hoping creek doesn't rise too much. It will probably be fine but I'm prepared anyway. At least I'm below the expected snow level this time.

But being at higher elevation will be better up here but hoping that everyone in the valleys and coast stay safe though. Good luck to all!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28616856


Please, please be careful of the trees. During "superstorm" Sandy, I watched a forty to fifty foot tree behind my house, as a huge (tree sized) branch came off it. It missed my house by about a foot, and when it hit the ground my house actually shook. If the damned thing had hit my house it would taken out the second floor.

Good luck, stay safe.

On the coast this is not major doom, some trees down, power outages, creeks flooding. Everything will be fine in general.

Central valley it could be very serious. Likely not an ARK storm, unless more come back to back. But certainly there will be flooding.
