ARKstorm fears Northern California Residents as Atmospheric River sets up
(TheWeatherSpace.com) - The ARKstorm was what would be predicted as a major rainfall event that would consist of a lot of snowfall in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, followed by a tropical air mass that melts all the snow.
Such a scenario might actually be coming, with the first round hitting on Wednesday, then Thursday into Friday, another on Saturday, and then lasting through Sunday as well. A full five days worth of heavy rainfall in Northern and Central California.
This will bring heavy mountain snow to the higher elevations, but below 8,000 feet it should be all rain. This will melt a lot of the snow that is already up there and cause major flooding in the Central Valley zones.
14 inches of rain for Sacramento is in the official TheWeatherSpace.com Forecast grid with 20 inches for the foothill zones east of there.
San Francisco will get over eight inches of rainfall.
TheWeatherSpace.com will have continued coverage of this event for all of California.
If you are in Southern California, the Southern California Weather Authority Facebook would be your one stop place to hop for weather and the area will receive very mild effects compared to the areas north of there.
