Extreme Rain Event Forecast as Storm Barrage Batters N. California

More extreme weather is forecast for N. California, as first of a line of storms struck northern California Wednesday, bringing torrential rain and high winds to the region.

The storms are expected to spawn extreme rain events, precipitating as much as 20 inches of rain, with wind gusts exceeding 70MPH in some areas over a five-day period.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued multiple warnings for the region:

More storm systems are on their way to Northern California, bringing significant rainfall and windy conditions with it. Mud and debris flows are possible, and some tree branches are likely to break off causing possible power outages.

Urban and small stream flooding is likely. Snow levels are approximately above 7000 ft, so most precipitation will fall as rain.

Up to 30″ of snow is possible for the Northern Sierra Mountains and Lassen National Park region starting Thursday evening. 

Heavy precipitation is expected with high rainfall rates Thursday night/Friday and again Saturday night/Sunday. Mud and debris flows are possible, especially near areas burned during recent wildfires.

Mudslides can occur during periods of heavy rainfall, as the water and the loose soils combine to form a viscous, muddy debris mass, which flows downslope, crushing and overwhelming anything in its path, NWS warned.

Sacramento Valley could experience mudslides, according to the warnings.
