The storm has arrived, and it’s living up to its promise. The first wave of heavy rain has passed, now it’s just a steady stream of moisture moving into the area.
So this first wave moved in just as we forecasted. Don’t be fooled when the sun comes out for a bit Thursday, storm 2 is still on track. This second storm will have quite a punch, especially Friday morning.
The two storms are still are on track for Wednesday afternoon, there are just some minor changes in timing and totals.
City authorities are taking measures to prepare for possible flooding that may come along with the two rain storms approaching California.

Rain and snow, which began to fall in drought-stricken California on Friday, is expected to continue through the weekend in the biggest storm that the area has seen in more than a year.

The cooler breezy weather continues for Southern California. Temperatures are running about 4 to 6 degrees below average Tuesday.
Wednesday will still be nice with temperatures hovering in the mid to upper 70s. Everything changes Thursday as the ridge of high pressure is knocked down and a wave of energy moves through causing a slight chance of drizzle and temperatures below average.
California’s current drought — the result of one of the driest California winters in recent memory — has driven scientists to attempt to make their own much-needed rain fall from the sky.
Temperatures continue to run above average, but just a touch cooler today. Expect warmer weather Tuesday and Wednesday as an off-shore flow develops once again.
There will be some slight warming on Monday.
