Summary: Quiet day through out California, weather wise.
Most activity in our field offices has returned to normal operations today. We have a few crews out, one on the Mojave River nr Barstow making measurements as the flood wave makes it's way downstream. Other teams include one out from Sacramento measuring on the lower San Joaquin River at Vernalis, one from Redding measuring the Trinity River at Burnt Ranch.
Routine follow up measurements and repairs are also being made by one technician from Ukiah and one team from Santa Cruz. Poway also has one tech going to measure the Whitewater River at Indio. Our remaining offices at Santa Maria and Truckee are staying in working on records.
Yet another round of precipitation is expected to impact the state, north to south, beginning Monday. It is expected to be cold in nature and therefore poses little threat to melt much of that 53 feet of snow in Truckee that I reported out on yesterday. The Valley and Coast Ranges may be a different story. Stay tuned.
