The current 24 hour rainfall forecast

Postby WB Staff » Sat Oct 23, 2021 6:25 pm

We are forecasting potentially historic rain for Downtown Sacramento. The current 24 hour rainfall forecast for tomorrow is 4.86 inches. If this verifies, it would be the second highest 24hr rainfall amount for Downtown Sacramento. The current record is 5.28 inches on April 20, 1880.
Be prepared for flooding and plan on staying home tomorrow!

Periods of heavy rainfall are possible late Saturday into Tuesday, with 2-5" in the Valley and 3-10" in the foothills and mountains. This could bring the potential for roadway and small stream flooding as well as ash & debris flows on recent burn scars

This will definitely put some water in our Lakes. Oroville has come up 2 feet since Friday, and this major storm is still coming. They just opened a low-low-low water gravel ramp at the Oroville spillway. With this storm, the possibility exists that the water will raise enough that it will not be usable. The problem since August has been the water level had this old gravel haul road on a flat area that did not have enough slope for launching. Let's hope it rises enough to get past this flat stretch. The few people that have gotten on the lake have reported that fishing is off the hook. Fish have not see a lure in months! And it is time for the fall feed.
