PG&E weatherman John Lindsey had this today about the approaching wet weather for Central California, the first good storm in a long time.
“This morning’s models are indicating that subtropical flow will increase Wednesday night into Thursday as a cold front moves through San Luis Obispo County. This system is expected to produce between 0.02 and 0.17 inches of rain on Thursday. Snow levels will start out rather high, at around 7,500 feet, before lowering Thursday to near 4,500 feet when the col front passes. A foot of new snow is expected above 5,500 feet, with more than 2 feet possible along the crest, as it appears this will be the first good storm for the Sierra since December 2012.”
