Overnight, the models aligned on the timing and duration of the first system which is beginning to push onshore in Central California.

There is still uncertainty regarding the second system due in late Thursday. For now, I am going to focus on the first system.

Unlike the maps that I have been posting for days, here are the forecast maps for precipitation through late Wednesday. I will address the second system on Wednesday and Thursday.
