Monster Storm - part 2

The first part of the big storm has passed and we are into the second phase now. A little clearing today before part 2 gets here. Parts of Redding's west side near Whiskeytown Lake got more than 8 inches of rain yesterday. They say Redding only got a couple of inches...
Wind gusts were clocked at 82 mph at the airport. Thousands of people were without power as trees and power lines came down.

Our next forecast:

HEAVY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE TODAY...

UNSTABLE AIR WILL SPREAD OVER INTERIOR NORTHERN CALIFORNIA TODAY. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP BY LATE AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE INTO THE EARLY EVENING. THUNDERSTORMS MAY CONTAIN LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN AND SMALL HAIL.

WITH THE GROUND SATURATED FROM YESTERDAY'S RAINFALL...LOCALIZED FLOODING WILL BE POSSIBLE NEAR HEAVIER SHOWERS. HAIL MAY ACCUMULATE ON THE ROADS AND CREATE SLIPPERY AND ICY CONDITIONS AT TIMES. HEAVIER SHOWERS MAY LOWER SNOW LEVELS IN THE FOOTHILLS DOWN TO 2500 FEET THIS AFTERNOON. ONE TO TWO INCHES OF SNOW COULD ACCUMULATE VERY
QUICKLY...CREATING HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS.
