California has suffered severe winter storms, flooding, and high winds since early March. These are expected to continue to the end of the month.
Just this past Tuesday, an atmospheric river brought thundering high gusts to the San Francisco area, and about 185,000 Californians were left without power. California Gov. Gavin Newsom emphasized how extreme the weather has been over the years.
“Look back the last couple of years in this state, it’s been fire to ice and no warm bath in between,” said Governor Newsom.
The Weather Service Climate Prediction Center said Californians will catch a short break over the weekend before the next atmospheric river also known as rivers in the sky comes along early next week to bring in more rain.
