9:30 am, NOAA/NWS Forecast Discussion:
DISCUSSION...as 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.
