We were finally getting some more much-needed rainfall this week. A pair of storm systems was to bring much needed rain and snow to the region over the course of 4 days or so. But along with it, flooding/mudslides was a concern, despite our area in severe drought and desperately need a good soaking.

So in this video, it shows our area in San Jose, CA experience windswept rain and gusty southerly winds as a 2nd, stronger storm system impacts our area during the early morning hours of Friday, February 28, 2014.

The 1st storm impacted our area Wednesday morning... the first in a series of Pacific storm systems that had brought rainfall to our region. Light rain fell Wednesday morning with rainfall increasing through the afternoon hours of Wednesday and impacting the Wednesday evening commute. The next stronger 2nd storm had arrived late Thursday night into Friday. This system's heaviest rain was focused more over Southern California. Nonetheless, the entire Bay Area had received decent rainfall with this 2nd system. This storm's main strong surface low off the coast had produced strong southerly winds along the coast and in the hills. This massive storm had battered the Bay Area with rain and wind early Friday and knocked out power to more than 55,000 PG&E customers. But it ultimately provided the parched region more rainfall. The storm dropped most of its moisture between midnight Thursday and dawn Friday. Cold rain showers continued into Saturday...

***After weeks of dry and mild weather, wet and stormy weather was finally back in the forecast for parched California. A pair of storms was forecasted to bring lots of rainfall to the parched state this week, a welcome news to a state that had just endured its driest year in recorded history. The 1st system had moved in Wednesday. The 2nd stronger storm brought a much-needed soaking to many communities Friday. Our area got a total of roughly 2.83 inches of rainfall this month, nearing its average of around 3.22 inches. Even after a reasonably wet February, the Bay Area would still need to see five to 10 more significant storms by the end of April for rain totals to hit their seasonal averages...
