The West Coast is gearing up for a wet storm cycle described by meteorologists as an “atmospheric river” because it can transport water vapor at a flow rate 15 times as strong as the Mississippi River (NOAA/ESRL). These storm conditions are likely to cause flooding in Northern California and heavy snow in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
