Massive rain coming to Southern California 20 inches

... A MAJOR PATTERN CHANGE IS EXPECTED NEXT WEEK WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR EXCESSIVE RAINFALL AND STRONG WINDS...

A MAJOR CHANGE IN THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON SUNDAY AND CONTINUE THROUGH NEXT WEEK. A VERY POWERFUL WEST TO EAST JET STREAM SAGGING SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE PACIFIC WILL BREAK DOWN THE PERSISTENT RIDGE ACROSS THE WEST COAST. THIS WILL ALLOW A SERIES OF STORM SYSTEMS TO TRACK INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WHILE MAINTAINING A RICH SOURCE OF SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE.

CONFIDENCE IS GROWING THAT SIGNIFICANT AND POSSIBLY EXCESSIVE RAINFALL WILL OCCUR OVER SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA FROM LATE SUNDAY THROUGH MOST OF NEXT WEEK. LIGHT RAIN COULD DEVELOP ACROSS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BY LATE SUNDAY... WITH INCREASING RAIN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY MONDAY INTO MONDAY EVENING. THIS FIRST SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BRING .50 TO 2 INCHES ACROSS MOST COASTAL AND VALLEY AREAS... WITH 2 TO 4 INCHES ACROSS FOOTHILL AND MOUNTAIN AREAS. THE STATION BURN AREA CAN EXPECT THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL WITH THIS FIRST SYSTEM FROM MONDAY AFTERNOON INTO MONDAY EVENING.

THE SECOND STORM SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO AFFECT THE REGION ON TUESDAY. THE THIRD AND MOST LIKELY STRONGEST STORM SYSTEM IS EXPECTED WEDNESDAY INTO EARLY THURSDAY. A COLD AND UNSTABLE AIR MASS WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP A THREAT OF SHOWERS INTO AT LEAST FRIDAY. FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK... THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR RAINFALL TOTALS OF 4 TO 8 INCHES IN COASTAL AND VALLEY AREAS... AND 8 TO 16 INCHES IN THE FOOTHILLS AND MOUNTAINS. LOCAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OVER 20 INCHES WILL BE QUITE POSSIBLE ACROSS FAVORED SOUTH FACING COASTAL SLOPES.

THE STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS THAT ARE PROJECTED AT TIMES NEXT WEEK COULD BRING SIGNIFICANT OROGRAPHIC ENHANCEMENT OF RAINFALL ACROSS SOUTH FACING SLOPES. EARLY INDICATIONS ALSO SHOW THE POSSIBILITY OF EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS AT TIMES DURING THE WEEK. RAINFALL RATES BETWEEN ONE HALF INCH AND ONE INCH PER HOUR WILL BE POSSIBLE DURING TIMES OF HEAVIEST RAINFALL... ESPECIALLY ACROSS SOUTH FACING SLOPES. IF THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOP... THERE WILL BE THE POTENTIAL FOR ISOLATED RATES IN EXCESS OF ONE INCH PER HOUR.

THE LARGE AMOUNT OF EXPECTED PRECIPITATION... AS WELL AS THE POTENTIAL FOR HIGH INTENSITY RAINFALL... WILL BRING A SIGNIFICANT THREAT OF FLASH FLOODING AND DEBRIS FLOWS... ESPECIALLY TO THE RECENT BURN AREAS. AS SOILS BECOME MORE SATURATED THROUGH THE WEEK... THERE COULD ALSO BE AN INCREASED RISK OF URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOODING. IF THE STRONG STORM MATERIALIZES FOR THE WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY TIME FRAME... THERE COULD ALSO BE SOME MAIN STEM RIVER FLOODING CONCERNS.

SNOW LEVELS ARE GENERALLY EXPECTED TO RANGE BETWEEN 4000 AND 6000 FEET NEXT WEEK. AS STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS PRECEDE THE STRONG SYSTEMS... SNOW LEVELS SHOULD BRIEFLY RISE ABOVE 6000 FEET ON MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY. THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT SNOW IN THE MOUNTAINS NEXT WEEK... WITH SEVERAL FEET OF NEW SNOW POSSIBLE AT RESORT LEVELS ABOVE 6000 FEET.

THERE WILL LIKELY BE PERIODS OF STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS NEXT WEEK... WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR WIDESPREAD GALE FORCE WINDS ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS AND DAMAGING WINDS ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA. AS THESE STORMS MOVE INTO THE AREA NEXT WEEK... THEY WILL ALSO BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR A LONG DURATION OF HEAVY SURF CONDITIONS AND DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS TO LOCAL BEACHES. THE COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS AND HIGH SEAS COULD ALSO BRING SOME COASTAL FLOODING ISSUES... ESPECIALLY NEAR TIMES OF HIGH TIDE.

RESIDENTS OF SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA ARE URGED TO STAY TUNED FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION ON THESE POTENTIALLY STRONG STORM SYSTEMS.

I hope to hell you CAn's have taken the time to get FLOOD insurance. I've been out in LA during heavy storms but nothing like it indicates here and the extreme possibility of flooding in the valleys was high then. Storm sewers can't handle something the likes of which is outlined here. I would suggest that yall start sandbagging now. Just sayin................

This will destroy CA. Deserts cant even take an inch of rain yet along 20. Their budget is shot, no cash, getting ready to lay off 33,000 people. Maybe they can get Super Obama to declare some sort of emergency give everyone cleanup jobs for a month.

Re: Massive rain coming to Southern California 20 inches
shades of the Winter 2004-2005 rainy season in California... that year clocked in at the most rain ever, since they started keeping records (give or take a tenth of an inch here and there)... memories... in January 2005 it was like God unzipped the skies and buckets rained down! but never 20 inches in one week like THIS forecast for next week...

wow.

Re: Massive rain coming to Southern California 20 inches
California will be hit hard by an onslaught of major storms next week. This is a big deal, folks. Something we haven't seen the likes of in quite some time.


Powerful ocean storms are going to play tag with tropical moisture all week long, and quite a bit of that moisture will be pumped into the West Coast. California will probably get the worst of it, but the storms will produce rain all the way to British Columbia.


Along the California coast and all windward-facing slopes, rainfall totals could easily exceed a half foot by the end of the week. That means serious flooding is likely, and there is a high probability of destructive mudslides.


Along the coast, storms will produce high winds and pounding waves that can cause significant damage to oceanside properties.
