Impressive Rain/Snow for the West – But Just A Drop in the Bucket

7 Feb 2014, 1:04 pm

Wet weather inundates areas stretching from Washington to California.  These are drought stricken areas that have been trapped in a dry weather pattern and desperately need the wet weather.  But the rain expected to fall through the weekend will only be a fraction of what is needed and getting all this moisture at once may cause flooding and mudslide issues.

Projected rainfall for next 3 Days

To put all this rain into perspective, although, this looks like substantial amount of rain, it isn’t quite enough to make up for the dry spell that has led to the drought conditions.

Active weather pattern expected to persist through the weekend and into next week.
