Weather report shows back-to-back storms set to slam California this weekend

Almost the entire state of California is on flood watch on Monday with up to ten inches of rain possible in areas, along with tornadoes.

More than 37 million people are facing strong winds, torrential rain and snow in mountain areas until Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Californians were warned to prepare for power outages, mud or rock slides and coastal flooding. Public officials urged drivers to stay off flooded roads.

Tornadoes were possible in the Sacramento Valley region, according to forecasters, along with the slight risk of severe thunderstorms over parts of inland northern California. The heaviest rain — up to ten inches — is set to hit the Saint Lucias and Saint Ynez Mountain ranges, according to the NWS.

This latest atmospheric river began to swamp California on Sunday, the latest in a series of back-to-back storms to hit the state.

Many parts of California are already saturated from the heavy rain and there have been hundreds of landslides so far.

Second atmospheric river weather system to stay until Wednesday

The second atmospheric river weather system to hit the West Coast in recent weeks is expected to last until Wednesday, the National Weather Service (NWS) has said.

A forecast on Sunday said that following a brief period of isolated, light showers across the region, a stronger storm system moves into the area by the afternoon.

“This second system will stick around into Wednesday and bring periods of heavy rain, gusty winds, cooler temperatures, high-elevation snow, and a slight chance of thunderstorms,” the NWS said.

“Dry weather with warming temperatures are expected to follow on Thursday and Friday.”
