Via Aquafornia: “I am looking at a storm developing in the eastern Pacific today that made me look at the calendar to confirm it’s still October … a huge storm is coming to a large part of California, especially the northern two thirds.” – Ken Clark, AccuWeather.com.

For Southern California Clark predicts: Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are likely in western Santa Barbara County to 1.5 to 2.5 inches in Ventura County, 0.75 to 1.50 in the LA Basin diminishing to 0.10 to 0.30 inches in San Diego County. These are total rain amounts through Wednesday as a few showers linger behind the main rain band.

For the deserts: Some rain or showers are likely to develop in the upper deserts but the lower deserts will be mostly rain free. Rainfall amounts in the upper deserts will be generally under a quarter to a half inch. But there will be winds of 20 to 35 mph.

For burn areas: In and around recent burn areas it will be the worst with mudslides and debris flows likely.
