Miracle March II

Looking good for our water supply, as this story from Accuweather reports.

An excerpt.

“After an absence of major storms for much of the winter, the ‘March Miracle,’ in terms of wet weather, seems likely to continue next week in California.

The storm that brought drenching rain and yards of snow to the Sierra Nevada early this week has now all but cleared out of the state of California.

“A lull in storms is forecast late this week to this weekend, but a new series of storms is destined to impact much of the West next week with more rain and mountain snow from Monday to Wednesday.

“It looks like a general 1 to 3 inches of rain during the first half of the week for California alone,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.

“The most frequent rain may focus from just north of Los Angeles to the Oregon border, but some periodic rains will sweep through the L.A. Basin to San Diego and the deserts as well.

“The rainfall can cause some problems at the local level as most rainstorms do in the region. These include incidents of mudslides and flash flooding.

“The rain may be spread out enough to prevent a great deal of flash flooding, so this will likely bring more benefits in terms of drought relief rather than problems,” Anderson said.”
