Storm headed to Oroville Dam area carries 10 inches of rain, revised forecast warns.
I pretty much expected this story to fall off the radar because the satellite presentation of the storms coming in didn't't seem too crazy. The storms in general were predicted to be not as strong as the ones that caused the overflow. It wasn't until last night that I thought drama was still on the table.
You see, when they first started talking about these new storms, they predicted that we would only get about three days of rain. Then all of a sudden last night they expanded it to seven days. And that is pretty much what happened the last time that caused all the dam drama. Every day you checked the weather, they added another day. When all done it had rained for about 10 days in a row. California can drain a lot of water if it doesn't rain for days and days.
Now these storms do seem less strong, but they are still carrying water from Hawaii. You can never tell what a storm that strafes Hawaii is going to bring.
