A fast-moving storm hits California a day after a deadly atmospheric river released

Angels – Just one day after a deadly weather storm moved out of California and extended eastward and impacted the Las Vegas area, where preparations for Super Bowl LVIII are underway, another storm moved into the Golden State with rain and additional snow.

This storm is less severe than the one that just brought damaging wind gusts and heavy rain, but the FOX Forecast Center warned that additional precipitation from the storm could slow ongoing cleanup efforts in the wake of the multi-day atmospheric river.

Rain began to fall in Northern California during the day Wednesday as a new area of ​​low pressure descended from the north.

The storm’s path from the north will cut off any connection to tropical moisture, so this will not be an atmospheric river, the Fox Forecast Center said.

Although not part of an atmospheric river, strong thunderstorms have been said to have produced tornadoes across Southern California.

Reported hurricane damage was seen at Grover Beach.

“We have received reports of a tornado in Pismo Beach and Grover Beach – unconfirmed but convective (environment) is ripe for intense convection. Use caution! Seek shelter if you are in (the area). Expect heavy rain, hail, lightning. And strong winds” NWS Los Angeles Written on X Wednesday afternoon.

The fast-moving storm system is expected to make landfall in Southern California by Wednesday night, bringing more rain to the Los Angeles area after sunset. The Los Angeles area can expect to see rainfall totals from this latest storm of around 0.10-0.40 inches, with some higher amounts locally.

How to watch Fox Weather

The good news is that the speed at which the storm will move and the lack of tropical moisture will limit rainfall totals.

This type of system usually does not cause flooding concerns. However, the ground remains saturated after record-breaking rainfall totals from the previous weather storm.

For this reason, rain from this storm may lead to additional flooding in areas that have experienced flash flooding over the past few days.

The FOX Forecast Center is forecasting about a foot of additional snow with some locally higher totals from this latest storm system.
