California is expected to get drenched with rains that are likely to make an appearance over the region later this week. The southern region of the state is also expected to receive some showers.
Though these rains are considered beneficial to curb the drought, possibilities of localized flash flooding from Thursday to Friday cannot be ruled out as well. These torrential rains can even cause travel disruptions leading to power outages as well.
As per the latest U.S. Drought Monitor, more than 40 percent of the state is under the influence of incomparable drought. The city of Victorville on Sunday, also observed some good showers after April 28 measuring close to 0.11 of an inch.
Before the storm track shifts towards south, most of the wet weather is expected to focus on the Pacific Northwest into midweek.
Hefty showers are likely to fall across northern and central California, including San Francisco and Sacramento. Areas that have recently been lucky in missing out the Pacific storms include the Fresno, Bakersfield and Los Angeles.
Rainfall ranging from 0.50 to 2 inches can make an appearance as claimed by the forecasters. Although, higher amounts are possible, especially across the Sierra. Southern California may see rainfall amounting even less than half an inch.
However, Seymour, the major hurricane carrying moisture content can be drawn over to south of Baja California, Mexico around the weekend. Mudslides and flash flooding can make a possibility over the areas that have been burned due to wildfires.
