Daniel Swain in LA Times—Prepare for the latest blow: Rain, snow and high winds hit California

“Yet more rain, yet more heavy mountain snow, more travel disruptions,” Daniel Swain, UCLA climate scientist said Monday. He called it “another moderate to strong storm,” though not comparable to last week’s destructive storm, which caused multiple deaths, severe flooding, and Southern California tornadoes.

The effects of this storm will be worse “just because there’s been so many strong storms that have preceded it,” Swain said. “There could be additional issues just given how much residual damage there is from winds that have already occurred, how saturated the soils are.”
