Weather Outlook For Calaveras County ~ Severe Weekend Conditions

Calaveras County, CA...Widespread Weather for Northern California is forecasted for the January 7, 2017 through January 10, 2017. The National Weather Service is predicting that Calaveras County will likely be impacted by this storm. The following information is from the National Weather Service:

Prepare Now for Significant Rain and Possible Flooding This Weekend-Early Next Week

• Widespread flooding of urban areas, roadways, small streams, and main stem rivers
• Enhanced downstream river flooding from flood control releases on numerous Sierra reservoirs
• Mud and debris flows on burn scars from past 4 years
• Rock and mudslides on mountain roadways
• Downed trees and power outages from wind and saturated soils
• Mountain travel delays and chain controls Saturday and Monday

Forecast Confidence
• High
• Medium in timing/amounts for additional storms past Monday

Timing and Strength
• Precipitation begins Saturday morning and continues through Monday
• heaviest Sunday, tapering off Monday

Rivers and Streams
• rising water levels Sunday - next week
• some points reach flood stage by Sunday
• streams and creeks that are free-flowing (no dams) will bear close watching; we could see impacts in those areas unseen for several years.

Snow levels
• begin ~3000 feet northern mountains and 4000 feet in the Sierra Saturday
• rise above 8000 feet Saturday night
• drop back below pass levels early Monday

• Valley gusts 30-45 mph
• Mountain ridgetop gusts 45 to 60 mph
Wet pattern continues past Monday
• Another potentially very wet storm system Tuesday-Wednesday, this time with lower snow levels. Continued flood threat.

Weather Summary
An atmospheric river, narrow corridor of concentrate moisture, will take aim at California this weekend with heavy precipitation, high snow levels and soils that are already saturated from recent storms. Moderate precipitation starts Saturday (7th), but the brunt of storm will be Sunday, tapering off Monday. Majority of the precipitation will fall as rain in the mountains as snow levels rise above 8000 feet. This is going to be some of the more significant flooding we've seen in the past decade...areas may flood that haven't seen impacts for several years. Use the break in the weather today and Friday to prepare. Additional storms are possible Tuesday into the following weekend. Keep in mind that flooding will take several days to recede in some areas after the rain stops.

Calaveras county BOS?
Posted on: 2017-01-06 04:33:38   By: Anonymous
I heard a rumor that Calaveras county had some new BOS sworn in, but couldn't find it here anywhere, is that true? If so, I sure wish this group is better then the greedy pot smokers of the last group that has ruined our community with all these pot growing criminals and their gang of criminals they have brought to our community.
