Drenching rain will fall on much of California through Tuesday night, bringing some relief to the ongoing drought and raising the risk of flash flooding.
While a series of storms have brought rain to parts of northern and central California over the past few weeks, Tuesday's storm will bring the first significant rain event for Southern California since the spring.
Some rain moved over part of the state on Sunday ahead of this week's storm, giving a preview of what is to come.
Ah, Southern California! I remember the weather well! It had the hot dry season and then the cool, cloudy, and (sometimes it was) wet season. I remember people always thought that 50 degree weather was cold Gasp! that's tee-shirt weather in Nebraska. Ah did I mention it was usually warmer than Nebraska. This is why you can probably find many more ex-Nebraskans in California than you can find actual Nebraskans in this state. I do have to say I did miss the the big old cumulus storm clouds that we have here in Nebraska, California weather could be boring while Nebraska's is usually irritating.
