The National Weather Service in Los Angeles confirmed two weak EF-0 tornadoes in the city of Compton, California (south of downtown LA) earlier Thursday morning! These brief tornadoes occurred around 8:45 AM - 9:00 AM PT and produced short but concentrated damage paths. Winds were estimated around 65-75 mph and the tornadoes only lasted a few minutes.
Showers and storms are moving out of Southern California on Friday, but rain and snow will still linger in Central and Northern California. With a widely above-average snowpack, the San Joaquin - Sacramento watershed region will be at the highest risk for flooding this month as many streams from the Sierra Nevada flow down into the valley.
