As of 5:00 pm, I received 1/2 inch since dawn today. It continues to rain, and the rains have been gusting quite strong. I am finished reporting for tonight, and must work at my paying job, but I leave you with a teaser for tomorrow’s post.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT FRACKING IS?
WHAT DOES FRACKING HAVE TO DO WITH MONTEREY COUNTY?
Stayed tuned for the answers to these questions.
9:15 am – dramatic change, sun is out, there is blue sky among the scattered clouds, and it is completely different than it was 15 mins ago. Per NOAA discussion:
“WE SHOULD SEE FAIRLY WIDESPREAD RAINFALL WITH SOME LOCALLY ROBUST VALUES. TOTALS BY MONDAY MORNING WILL BE FROM 1/4-3/4″ (LOCALLY 1″) FOR LOWER ELEVATION SPOTS AND 1-2″ IN THE HILLS (WITH THE HEAVIER AMOUNTS CLOSER TO THE COAST). 3″ IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION FOR PORTIONS OF THE SANTA CRUZ OR SANTA LUCIA MOUNTAINS. THE COMBINATION OF MODERATE RAINFALL PLUS STRONG WINDS WILL LIKELY TOPPLE OVER SOME TREES AND COULD BRING DOWN POWER LINES AT THE COAST. IN ADDITION…THUNDER AND SMALL HAIL REMAINS A POSSIBILITY.”
9 am -First, today Big Sur could be seeing upwards of an inch of rain this afternoon. At the moment, it is quite windy and dark, and there have already been some scattered showers. I only recorded a tenth of an inch from yesterday and last night’s sprinkles. I will be following this storm throughout the day.
