Storm Watch, 3/2/10

3:30 pm – well that was an interesting storm. It split, and north of Andrew Molera was a torrential mess, and south, near the county line, but Big Sur Valley stayed relatively dry. Good, as they are at saturation point, now.

NOON – ROCK AND MUDSLIDE AT SPINDRIFT IN THE HIGHLANDS BLOCKING THE NB LANE. CAL-TRANS WORKING ON IT, AND SHOULD BE OPEN SHORTLY.

Raining quite a bit in town, per sources. Not so much in Big Sur. Will keep an eye on everything, but all predictions seem to indicate this is a relatively fast one, with another slower one behind it. “NEXT SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE IN LATE TONIGHT AND EARLY WEDNESDAY. ANOTHER ROUND OF PRECIP WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH MUCH COLDER AIR ALOFT. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS AND SMALL HAIL WILL BE POSSIBLE.”
Here, the NexRad shows how Big Sur is right in between the rain. Light rain on my mountain, though. Joshua Canyon (near Garrappata) reports 1.3 inches for this storm.
