Heavy rainfalls and strong winds starting Wednesday


By: National Weather Service Sacramento CA

November 27, 2012 - A major shift in the weather pattern will bring wet and windy weather to Northern California beginning Wednesday and lasting through the weekend. Heavy precipitation is expected with high rainfall, especially later Thursday into Sunday.

Mud and debris flows are possible, especially near areas burned during recent wildfires. Urban and small stream flooding is likely, with weir overflow and runoff through bypasses possible.

Major flooding of larger rivers is not as likely in the valley due to low levels at reservoirs.

Snow levels above 7000 feet, so most precipitation will fall as rain. Expect local power outages due to downed limbs and trees.

In the mountains, flooding of rivers and creeks will become increasingly likely through the weekend. The area most likely to see significant river flooding at the higher elevations will be over Eastern Butte and Western Plumas Counties though other areas will also be vulnerable.
