Waters continued to rise on numerous California rivers Wednesday afternoon. https://youtu.be/aIKbf8T9930 The Russian River, Cache Creek and the Napa River have been especially high. The levels peaked late Wednesday at 46 feet on the Russian River affecting Guerneville, California and 83 feet on the Cache Creek affecting the town of Yolo. Floodwaters will gradually recede Thursday, but may be above flood stage until late Thursday night or early Friday morning. The major flooding came after a prolonged heavy rain event that began Monday. Some of the three-day rainfall totals were as high as twenty-three inches! Fortunately the heavy rain has halted for now. Thursday and Friday will feature a brighter sky, more sun and less clouds, as well as lighter and more intermittent rainfall. The next strong storm will soon come though, arriving at the California coastline Saturday. Get ready for more heavy rain and wind with that one! With Saturday's rain, the forecast accumulation is another 0.50 to 2.00" additional precipitation. For WeatherNation, Meteorologist Steve Glazier
