  1. Hi Kate

    Thanks for the info. My wife and I have vacationing here all week and first thing tomorrow are leaving for Northern California. Wondering if you had any info on road conditions on Hwy 1 between Plasket Ridge and Monterey.

  2. Kate,

    …I’m amazed at the totals I see on the coast and the nearby ridges, but, here in CVV, no street runoff, heavy mist off and on has been the excitement of this storm. No power outages. One third of an inch would be what I guess is the closest “rain” accumulation near my residence. Once this front passes back to normal dry conditions for the week.

    …Will the Soberanes Fire spot weather stations remain intact during the “wet” winter season? I would love to see those spots be added to the CNRFC Hydrology local county site or add a link to highlight those significant station areas.
