California monster El Niņo storm to bring up to three feet of snow (Global Warming?)
American Thinker ^ | 05/15/2019 | Chriss Street

California is being targeted by a monster El Niño Storm that will bring seven days of torrential rain, up to three feet of mountain snow, and may cause an Oroville Dam overflow.

A period of strengthening trade winds that seemed set to end this year’s El Niño that brought a record 188 percent of average snow pack to California’s Sierra Mountains, reversed in mid-April to surge a bloom of heated water along the Equatorial Pacific and reawaken a late season El Niño that has a 70 probability of lasting through the summer.

The upper atmosphere jet stream normally blows east to west at about 100 miles per hour across the Pacific Equator bringing torrential rains to Polynesia before curving up Asia, curving past Japan to Alaska and dropping down along the West Coast. But the jet stream has radically bent down and accelerated to 200 miles an hour to directly target California with the full load of Polynesia’s monsoon rains beginning on Wednesday.


Rainfall for the month of May normally averages just a quarter inch in Los Angeles and a half inch in San Francisco. But this storm is expected to dump at least 1 to 2 inches along the coasts, 4 inches inland, and up to 36 inches of snow at higher elevations.

The surprise storm-train, coming as all four Northern California reservoirs along the Sierras are already filled to 94 percent of capacity, will require opening their spillway gates, potentially flooding valley croplands and large population centers downstream.

Yup. Rain/snow starting tonight in the vicinity and carrying through to next week. They say. Countering the 84 degrees near the Arctic Ocean in Russia the other day with 415 ppm See-Uh-O-2. The highest in human history. Or something. Of course NOT the highest EVER. But it sure sounds like CLIMAGEDDON! doesn’t it?

Down here in Orange County, we’re slated to have rain tonight and tomorrow, but they’ll be getting a lot more up north. Rain in May is rare, but we have occasionally had “winter” storms as late as mid-June.

Fortunately, the new Orville Dam spillway is just about complete anyway. And Folsom Dam has the new auxiliary spillway ready for action. I wouldn't be surprised that the Department of Water Resources orders both dams to increase their water output right now.

Indeed, after the scary debacle in 1997, DWR and the US Bureau of Reclamation have usually opened up dam spillways a lot earlier than usual. After all, during the 2016-2017 winter, the American River through Sacramento, CA held up well, thanks to early water releases to keep the lake levels at safe levels.

Not to mention the Nevada Silver State Classic this weekend Between Lund and Crystal Springs with the “go as fast as you can” running south to north on SR-318. Wet roads could be an issue.

Guess they won’t have to worry about water shortages and rationing anymore.

All weather that happens confirms global warming.

Weather that fails to happen also confirms global warming.

And the state refuses to build reservoirs because “we will never be able to fill them, since drought is the new normal.” Such geniuses.
