Lots of cities in the Bay Area, Central Valley have picked up more rain today then they had in the previous 365 days! Been absolutely pouring up here with the snow levels around 10k. This storm will go into the record books.

I saw your posts on that other website for CA and was happy for your haul.

My parents in Oakland had 4 inches in their two gauges from some point on Friday until 11am today. I insisted they check their gauges tonight and as of 5pm they had had 2.5 inches in about 6 hours with more falling at that time.

That is insane... and that is approaching the SEA record from October 2003.   

Talk about a drought buster!

San Jose is rainshadowed?

No... the front is just getting there now.   Turn on Sunday Night Football on NBC to see what it looks like now in the San Jose area.   😁

It looks like some of the stations in San Francisco might have picked up over 4" of rain in the past 24 hours. I'm not familiar with the best climate history websites down there, but this might be up there with some of the wettest 24 hour periods in the history of the city (since 1847).

Yeah, downtown SF is over 4" now, with heavy rain continuing. Definitely one of the wettest storms in the airport era for much of the Bay area and central CA.

That’s not good…going to be some major flooding issues shortly if not already occurring.

Pretty sure that's their all-time record for any day.

Yeah...3.77" was the all-time record in 1962. Blew right through that and headed for likely ~6" on the day. Crazy.

Still only a trace for Monterey. They've got lots of catching up to do tonight.

My dad is on a bike trip there and I told him he’d probably get a couple inches of rain tonight but should be ok during the day today and tomorrow.  So far so good.

The AR later in the week is going to skip Oregon again. The trend is very clear at this point. The GFS, ICON, and GEM are all trending north. I already ‘’knew’’ this would happen, but I still had some hope for us. That’s gone now with 4 days to go. At least the rug wasn’t pulled at the last minute.

First, Vancouver Island. Then, Central/Northern Cali. Then, most of Washington. Will we ever be the bride or will we always the bridesmaid?

We’re likely going to end October slightly above normal for rainfall with a dry start to November. You would never guess that with all the forecast maps posted over the last week. The good news is that if we get less than .99’’ of rain through Friday, I win my bet with @RentonHillTC. My bet was for less than half of the Euro ensemble forecasted precipitation at the time. Fool’s bet or seen this movie too many times before? We’ll soon see.

Yeah, kind of disappointing. October will end with near average temps and near average precip.
