Another pulse of energy moved through California on Wednesday, bringing rain, snow and even a tornado to Grover Beach, CA about 200 miles north of Los Angeles, CA. Survey crews determined low end EF-1 damage was produced in the town of Grover Beach.

We are finally winding down the rain and snow in California, and the Golden State desperately needs a break. A few more rain and snow showers will be possible through the end of the day on Thursday before energy slides into Nevada and the Four Corners.

There is an upside to the rain and snow of the past week - our snowpack is growing in the Sierra Nevada which is needed for water supply headed into the spring and summer months.

Due to all the new snow and incoming snow, avalanche danger is considerable, around South Lake Tahoe, Mount Shasta, and the ski resorts around Mammoth Lake. Please be extremely cautious if you are hitting the slopes.
