Incoming Storm System
According the Sacramento office of the National Weather Serivce, the incoming storm system will bring #NorCal gusty conditions for the next several days. The strongest winds will occur Monday night and downed trees and potentially long lasting power outages.
Northern California’s rivers are expected to be in flood or danger stage for much of the early part of this week. Including Sacramento, Feather, Tuolumne, San Joaquin, Cosumnes, Mokelumne, Merced rivers and the Yolo Bypass.
Be flood ready and prepared with the potential for short notice of an evacuation order by local authorities. Be sure to check your local area for wireless emergency alerts that can come straight to your phone!
