Flood Advisory For Sacramento Valley Even As Rain Subsides

Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Friday, March 25, 2011

The Sacramento Valley has gotten more than an inch and a half of rain this week. 

"And most of it fell yesterday," George Cline, forecaster with the National Weather Service, said. 

George Cline is forecaster with the National Weather Service.  He says the heavy rains are over, but flooding of creeks and streams is still possible because rain from the foothills is still flowing into the valley. 
"The creeks are still going to stay high even though the rain has tapered off in the valley," Cline said.
Cline says light rain will continue through tomorrow. 
He says snow will continue to fall on the mountains too.  He expects about a foot in the next couple days.  High winds may cause visibility problems over the summit on Saturday. 
Cline says everything is expected to wind down Sunday.  He predicts sun and temperatures in the 60's next week. 
"We might even see 70 degrees by mid week next week," he said.
