chopper they apparently had enough wind to overturn some 18 wheeler's in your area, and close a number of the bridges that were oriented west to
it seem as though you really wanted to see some lightning though? this area of the county doesn't see too much of that, (the mountains get more)
but lightning in your vicinity is not required to verify the tenacity and strength of this storm, although this is
a larger slug of moisture is due to arrive in S. cali ( i.e los angelas to sandiego and out to the mountains and foothills by game time in the
chargers-titans gams (430 est)
late this evening current NWS forecasts are calling for heavy rain up to half an inch an hour and flooding concerns
this storm was a classic case of a deep pacific system with a deep subtropical connection of moisture plowing thru california on a 200 mph jet stream.
only anomaly was the strength (not the track) the "eye" or center of the storm was well north (in vancouver) but the biggest slug of moisture hit
far to the south in central california (as usual) and as usual the second punch of the storm will bring cooler weather (lower snowlevels) and focus
more of the precipitation further south (however still not as strong as the first slug friday nite in barometric pressure terms) but the side effects
due to the flooding potential could be worse.
