Happy New Year from us at Mike Smith Enterprises. Unfortunately, the year is starting with several threats to be aware of:
First, there is a tornado that in Texas today and tonight.
Monday, January 2
The flood threat I wrote about yesterday is materializing. Here is the seven day rainfall forecast.
In the Sierra, most of the precipitation at higher elevations will be snow, which will be excellent news for water storage purposes. However, some of the models are showing very heavy two-week amounts at lower elevations which is where the flood threat could originate.
The weather pattern in question is a Pineapple Express which is known for heavy rain in California. If it sets up, it still still be another few days away and any flooding will be beyond that. Stay tuned.
