Hazardous warning, 2/4

8:00 pm – Winds just picked up suddenly, which usually means rain is not far behind. If I am still awake when the rain starts, I will provide a start time. If I am asleep? All reporting is off. NOAA is saying after 10 pm. I am predicting with some degree of accuracy that I will be asleep by then, but then I’ve been known to be wrong before!!

This from NOAA:

.DAY ONE…WEDNESDAY NIGHT

RAIN WILL GRADUALLY DEVELOP ALONG THE COAST LATE THIS EVENING AND SPREAD EASTWARD THROUGH OUT THE NIGHT. RAIN MAY BE HEAVY AT TIMES LATE TONIGHT AND EARLY THURSDAY MORNING.

Also, NOAA said: “PERSONS NEAR THE BURN AREAS SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR THE LATEST

FORECASTS ESPECIALLY IF THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOP.”

Storms, update 2/4

Looks like a series of small storms, per NOAA. Tonight through part of Thursday, Thursday night through Friday, Sunday, and Tuesday. None are predicted to bring more than an inch of rain into our mountains, and only two of the four hold that possibility. The others are considerably less. Thunderstorms are still predicted for Thursday. Of course, we will all want to be prepared for problems on the road, particularly in the burn areas.

Currently, at 8 am, I have a few high clouds, some wind, and sunshine. The fog on the coast seems to have lifted.
