Wave after wave of moisture is headed in off the Pacific Ocean.
The National Weather Service issued this statement for the Sacramento area.
Here is what Accuweather.com is reporting.
The mainstream media will tell you simplistically that this will not put an end to the California drought. While technically true, the string of storms will put a meaningful and welcome dent into the drought and take the edge off the crisis. And four or five weeks of this kind of weather, which has been known to happen when previous coastal droughts have broken, will in fact put an end to the drought. We have identified information sources. We will be watching and reporting because we are interested and hope that you will be too.
