Friday, 3/10 updates as available

9:30 am, NOAA/NWS Forecast Discussion: of 08:25 AM PST Friday...Water vapor imagery
shows the southward progression of the moisture plume associated
with this atmospheric river. Due to this, dry air has begun to
move across the North Bay area. Radar indicates a continuation of
rainfall primarily across Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey and
San Benito counties. Heaviest rainfall will be along the coast of
Monterey County including Big Sur. This looks to remain the case
until this afternoon, when the moisture tap moves further south
limiting the potential for rainfall. Expect showers, more limited
in coverage, this evening into the overnight hours. Mainstem river
flooding will remain a concern as rivers continue to rise and
crest throughout the day. Urban flooding will also continue to
plague the area along with damage associated with winds and the
potential for landslides.

9 am – Las night, highway 1 was closed from Deetjen’s to Ragged Point. This morning around 8:30, they moved the southern closure to Elephant Seal vista. As of 7 am this morning, Mining Ridge has received 9” of rain. The latest forecast (3 am?) says the heaviest rain will be today. This photo was sent to me by Sylvia Trotter, sent to her by her son Marshall, who believes it originated with a county roads crew.

Says the wash out is at Chimney Rock Road at Dawn Road same as last storm, only this time took out the whole road.
