California 14-Day Rainfall Outlook

Here is an outlook of potential precipitation (snow in the Sierra, rain lower elevations) over the next two weeks. I believe the computer is underforecasting amounts over Donner Pass (between Colfax and Reno), so I have pulled the 7-9" in area into that region (see arrows).

There is a pretty good chance a "Pineapple Express" may set up. If that occurs, some of these amounts may be too low but that is too soon to pin down.

The rain will start near the Oregon border during the day Friday reaching San Francisco on Saturday.

The generous rainfalls should extend south into the higher elevations of Los Angeles and Orange counties next week.

If this forecast is correct, it will significantly dent the drought.
