DISCUSSION: As the primary impacts from one storm system end and the next round of winter storm impacts continue from this next incoming eastern Pacific low pressure system, there is much going on across many parts of California and beyond. More specifically, in light of the persistently heavy rainfall in the lower elevations of western as well as northwestern California, there have continued to be significant flooding and even some isolated flash flooding concerns in several valley regions across some parts of northwestern California. Therefore, if you need to travel out and about in these areas, be mindful of dangerous roadway conditions including (but not limited to) downed trees/power lines, washed out roadways/highways, debris from even minor landslides or mudslides, etc. As noted in the video briefing above, this is a very serious and ominous situation for many positioned in any lower-lying (valley) regions of western and northwestern California since you are particularly vulnerable to flooding and flash flooding in such locations.
