A series of storms will impact California later this week into next. Recently, not much has been going on through central and Southern California with no substantial rain being reported from San Francisco southward since Feb. 9.

The first storm will hit later Friday and Friday night then another comes in Sunday. Neither of these storms look capable of producing destructive winds and excessive rainfall, but they will get you wet. Of the two, the Sunday storm might be the strongest.

The storms are being born out of the El Nino weather pattern which favors low pressure systems coming into California rather than the Pacific Northwest.

Ultimately, these disturbances will encounter colder air covering the central and eastern part of the United States. That could mean more snow trouble for many.
