On the bright side, the trend could curb drought from central California to Washington state and put the fire season in the region a knockout blow.
The strongest storm is expected to hit Sunday afternoon through Monday morning. This storm has the potential to produce abundant precipitation as far south as California’s central coast, as well as strong winds and heavy mountain snowfall – up to 8 feet – in the Sierra Nevada.
