Midweek brings inclement weather to north coast

Written by 

According to a press release titled, "Message from Office of Emergency Services - Weather Shift",  from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office, dated Nov. 27, 2012:

A major shift in the weather pattern will bring wet and windy weather to all of Northern and Central California beginning midweek and lasting through the weekend and into the beginning of next week. Heavy precipitation is expected across northern portions of the state with high rainfall rates first on Wednesday then again on Friday into Saturday. Urban and small stream flooding will be common, even extending into central California. Regarding main stem rivers, this event will be the largest of the season to date, and rapid rises on some rivers can be expected, but for the most part remain below levels of serious concern. Meanwhile mud and debris flows are possible especially near areas burned during recent wildfires.

The press release goes on to indicate that the flood control reservoirs seem to be in excellent shape and further states that: "This storm sequence should wet basins down pretty well, making subsequent events much more effective, and the long-range guidance suggests that the storm door is remaining open."
