"Two more storms are lining up over the northern Pacific Ocean and have their sights set on bringing more rain and mountain snow to California, Oregon and Nevada.

According to Western Weather Expert Ken Clark, "Neither of the two storms will match the intensity of the storm from this week, but substantial rain and snow are likely." As is often the case with storms with heavy rain in the region, there will be a renewed risk of flash flooding and mudslides.

One storm is projected to move in during the first part of next week. The storm will spread drenching rain onshore into northern California Sunday night and spread into Oregon and central California on Monday." Sosnowski, Expert Senior Meteorologist, 12/12/14.  "Two additional storms lined up to drench California before Christmas."  Read article.
