One of the largest storms to hit Northern California in at least six years is headed Turlock's way on Thursday and Friday. Thanks to an atmospheric river of moisture streaming from the subtropical latitudes, two inches of rain and 40+mph wind gusts are forecast to blast Turlock Thursday morning into the early hours of Friday. For rainfall amounts updated every 5 minutes or so, visit the THS weather station button below. To see how the storm impacted our drought, check out my drought monitor on Friday morning.
In the meantime, make sure all loose items are indoors so that nothing blows away! For more info be sure to check out the NWS Sacramento & Hanford's twitter feeds for up to date warnings and forecasts
