Per NOAA: “The next round of rainfall is knocking on our door….
The heaviest rainfall will arrive tonight with the cold front. Latest timing, which is slightly slower than yesterday, brings the heavier rainfall into the North Bay close to midnight and then spreading it south and east through the night and early Thursday. Steady rainfall will transition to showers behind the front from N to S on Thursday. One thing that has remained is the moisture content with the front. PWAT values are still forecast to be about 1-1.2". AR guidance also suggests the IVT values just under 500 kg/(ms). Rainfall amounts will be highest over the North Bay and coastal mountains 0.50-0.75"...interior valleys and Monterey Bay region about 0.25"...and interior Monterey/San Benito less than 0.25". Fortunately rainfall intensity does not appear to be higher enough to cause debris flow concerns with the burn areas,”
