The light sprinkles seen in the Tri-Valley Monday are gone for now, but a major storm is due to arrive on Thursday and possibly over the weekend.
Representatives of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials said this morning that rain is expected to develop Thursday through Friday morning and will probably impact the Thursday afternoon commute.
The rain may be heavy on Thursday evening over the Loma and
Soberanes burn scars. There may be as much as one to four inches of rain over the highest peaks, NOAA officials said.
Residents with property in the burn scar areas should protect
themselves against potential debris flows or flash floods.
South winds reaching 15 to 24 mph with gusts up to 35 mph may be possible from Thursday to early Friday, NOAA officials said
