Hot, Hot, Hot...June 'Heatwave' hits California

Hot, Hot, Hot...June 'Heatwave' hits California

...records were broken all over the SF Bay Area yesterday and today...June 10 and 11...San Francisco reached into the high 90's with other coastal towns getting close to the century mark also ...100 degree temperatures are not that uncommon around the Bay Area...usually in late summer and early is when we get an 'off-shore' flow event...these temperatures seem very hot for June, especially after a cold and wet month of May...headlines cross-country told of San Francisco temperatures being higher

Russian River Flooding/ camping at Johnson's Beach

Russian River Flooding/ camping at Johnson's Beach

...Now that this story has achieved National headlines it looks as if people are beginning to understand how much rain can fall in California during 'extreme' events...this flooding was very devastating to many residents along the massive Russian River course... ...downtown Guerneville was virtually cut-off from the rest of the county...idee has camped many times at Johnson's Beach during the summer while he worked at the Sonoma County Fair in Santa Rosa...most of these years were in the 'd

Winter Rains In SF Bay Area...storm 'totals'

Winter Rains In SF Bay Area...storm 'totals'

It was worth waiting for...the storm coming down from the Gulf of Alaska finally reached the South Bay Area in the late evening on Sunday night...high winds and heavy rains buffeted the area...with gigantic waves crashing into the coastline...NWS had warned of coastal high waves of up to 30-50 feet along the Northern and Central California coastline...NWS wasn't 'fooling around' with this 'tweet'...more storms are expected by this weekend, as a few perturbations move into the Pacific NorthWest f

Another 'leaf' falls from the 'tree'...storm track is 'online'

Another 'leaf' falls from the 'tree'...storm track is 'online'

Another storm is just offshore of the California Coast...beautiful 'baroclinic leaf' motif rminds us that the leaves are changing and 'falling' quickly now as winter approaches...the high winds and heavy rains(and Sierra snowfall) give hope of a wet winter and abundant replenishment of snowpack in the Sierras, as well as ground water and reservoir storage of much needed runoff from these 'early' season storms(Oct.-Mar. is California's main 'rainy season')...light to moderate rain should last unt

No 'Official' 'El-Nino yet...even so 'getting wet'

No 'Official' 'El-Nino yet...even so 'getting wet'

Rain fell on the whole San Francisco Bay Area yesterday...it took until late afternoon to reach San Jose and parts south...a nice soaking rain has made it easier for this next system's heavy rain to soak into the ground and re-charge the aquifer before the totals get high and run off into the stream and rivers sending it into the Bay and Pacific Ocean...Butte County and other fire-ravaged areas must remain vigilant now that heavy rain is expected...flooding, rock slides and debris flows could be

Call It Stormy Monday(But Tuesday Is Just as Bad)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_It_Stormy_Monday_(But_Tuesday_Is_Just_as_Bad) ...idee had a 'day' that was 'stormy'...the 'cause celebre' of the moment without even knowing about any of the 'controversy' until today...oh well...figured to start a place to rant, predict and generally talk weather...SF Bay Area (terrible smoke from fires in Paradise, CA) and such...  Paradise...lost...                                                    our thoughts and prayers go out to all the famili
