But looks like I might be in for some real rain later in the week.La Niña is loosening its grip on the tropics. Sea surface temperatures in the central and eastern tropical Pacific remain cooler than average, but the typical La Niña wind and rainfall anomalies have faded. Conditions are likely (55% chance) to return to neutral by the March-May season.
Indications are that the leading edge of a very
well organized long fetch of subtropical moisture will first arrive
later Thursday, an atmospheric river with maximum integrated water
vapor transport values meeting or temporarily exceeding 1,000 kg/m/s
from Friday into Saturday. On a scale from 1 (weak) to 5 (exceptional)
this atmospheric river will last approx 48 hours at category 3 or
category 4 which means it`ll be borderline mostly hazardous with
respect to hydro considerations, but also of course bring beneficial
So I might see somewhere on the order of 5" of rain by Sunday.Thursday
