Wednesday Top of the Scroll: Here’s how the next two atmospheric rivers will affect California
Forecasters have warned California residents that unsettled weather through Thursday is likely to bring heavy rains, strong winds and mountain snow as another atmospheric river moves down along the West Coast. Another storm will threaten the region early next week. While forecasters warned on Tuesday to begin preparing for inclement weather, the National Weather Service’s San Francisco Bay Area office said that the heaviest rainfall will begin around the Wednesday morning commute for some areas and toward the afternoon farther south down the coast. Flooding and downed trees will be the most common hazards.
