The drought struck California is expected to witness some stormy and snowy weather for the next week or so. Sierra Nevada in the state has already been witnessing massive storms in the past few days. Now, some feet of snow are expected to drop in the coming days as well.
The point to be noted here is that it is not just one storm but a series of them that are expected to affect weather in the state of California. The state is expected to be battered by some heavy rain and feet of snow in the coming days in view of the atmospheric river event.
While it does sound like good news for travelers who have been looking for some snow for skiing, residents will face the fury of these storms in the form of mudslides along with flooding in many areas.
California is likely to get so much rain and snow that is expected to be the highest since the drought years began in the state.
The metro areas of California including Los Angeles and San Francisco are expected to witness significant flooding. Weathermen are calling it a once in 10-year event. These weather conditions are expected to last for a while.
So much so that heavy rainfall is likely over Los Angeles around Monday while the rain is expected to begin Saturday onward itself. These atmospheric river events help in increasing the rainfall amounts of California annually, it is the disaster that comes along with it which happens to be the real concern.
