Atmospheric River Predicted: Expect to Get Wet This Week
“An atmospheric river is expected to bring several rounds of moderate to heavy rain Thursday through the weekend,” predicts the National Weather Service. “The first wave is expected Thursday and will be followed by another round early Friday morning.”
By Friday night, the Weather Service believes the main front of the storm will arrive. First, they predict “gusty southerly winds” but then expect more rain. The Weather Service predicts that rivers will rise quickly–some may even approach flood monitoring stage. They warn that small stream flooding is possible.There will be snow but mostly above 7000 feet and it isn’t expected to impact major roads.
