California storm

Updated: 12/9/2018 6:29:49 AM
Southern California was slammed by heavy rainfall, pockets of steady snow and mudslide occurrences as the latest winter storm swept through the region. The conditions caused major traffic disruptions and flash flood threats as rockslides and mudslides forced road closures. Some of the flooding can be attributed to the heavy rain in the burn scar areas near the Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and the Holy Fire. In the Sun Valley of Los Angeles, numerous lanes were shut down after an overturned vehicle resulted in one fatality.

Winter storm brought heavy rain, floods, mudslides and mountain snow to southern California. This is the second storm in a week to hit the drought-stricken region. It dropped record-breaking rain, caused floods, mudslides and major traffic disruptions. According to NBC4 meteorologist Anthony Yanez, rain amounts in and around Los Angeles ranged from 12.7 mm to nearly 102 mm with snow at 12.7 cm and counting. Normal monthly rainfall for December in Los Angeles is about 59.1 mm. One person died after a vehicle overturned in the Sun Valley of Los Angeles, shutting down numerous lanes.
A mudslide closed a 16 km stretch of State Route 1, in both directions from western Malibu to the Ventura County Line. The California Department of Transportation said the closure occurred in the vicinity of last month's Woolsey fire and urged commuters to find other routes. The department added that many areas between Redding and Riverside County are at risk of mudslides and flooding after wildfires stripped the land bare.

Southern California has been slammed by heavy rainfall, pockets of steady snow and mudslide occurrences as the latest winter storm sweeps its way through the region. The conditions have caused major traffic disruptions and flash flood threats as rockslides and mudslides have forced road closures. Some of the flooding can be attributed to the heavy rain in the burn scar areas near the Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and the Holy Fire. In the Sun Valley of Los Angeles, numerous lanes were shut down after an overturned vehicle resulted in one fatality. Numerous other roads were shut down due to mudslides and loosened rock slides. Mudslides in the burn scar areas have trapped cars and covered roads in debris, while in Orange County, the Sheriff's Department issued a voluntary evacuation warning to residents.

A new winter storm is gearing up to bring widespread impacts from the south-central United States to the East later this week after first sweeping into California around midweek. The new storm is expected to end the current cool and dry spell in California by returning another round of rain, mountain snow and gusty winds.

A major storm brought localized mudslides and street flooding to California and some people had to be rescued from stranded vehicles, but fire-scarred areas escaped large-scale damage.
Water from flash floods receded in Northern California and crews on Friday cleared debris from roads, culverts and levees that flooded in Chico, said Butte County spokeswoman Kelly Hubbard.
The heavy rain inundated roads, trapping people in about 100 vehicles and forcing some mandatory evacuations in Chico, a city of 90,000 where many of the fire evacuees from Paradise are staying.
All roads that were closed during the emergency were opened by Friday, and the Butte County Sheriff's Office said mandatory evacuations for homes in low-lying areas had been reduced to evacuation warnings.

A dynamic Pacific storm is delivering heavy to excessive rainfall, mountain snow, gusty winds and high surf to California. This system will evolve into a major multi-faceted storm Friday through the weekend, with severe weather in the South and heavy snow in parts of the Midwest.

Heavy rain and mountain snow is spreading across California and will bring the risk of flooding, mudslides and travel delays into Friday, AccuWeather meteorologists report.

Measurable rain is expected in the state’s largest cities, including in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Sacramento.

Mandatory evacuations have already been issued for people living near the Holy Fire burn scar due to the potential for flooding and mudslides, while those in Malibu near the Woolsey Fire burn scar have been put on alert for potential evacuation.

Several roads across the Golden State have already been closed following debris flows near the burn scars of recent wildfires, including the Ferguson Fire, Camp Fire and Holy Fire.

A cold front brought heavy rain, isolated thunderstorms and even dime-sized hail to portions of Santa Barbara County on November 29, capping off a two-day rain event that broke a Santa Maria record and dumped more than four inches of rain on some county mountains.

The storm broke a 112-year-old rainfall record at the Santa Maria Public Airport. As of 5:18 p.m., the Hancock Field rain gauge reported receiving 18 mm of rain, surpassing the 13.9 mm recorded in 1906.

After producing widespread snow showers across the Rockies on Friday, precipitation expands in coverage and intensity from the Gulf Coast to the Upper Midwest and northern plains by Friday night and into Saturday morning.

In the warm sector of the developing surface low, multiple episodes of severe weather are becoming increasingly likely from southern Louisiana to the ArkLaTex region.

The Storm Prediction Center currently has much of that region delineated in an enhanced risk area for severe thunderstorms, given favorable wind shear and thermodynamic parameters that are expected to exist.
