John Lindsay concurs, He also stated that Wednesday could see 20 foot surf within the Channel, Santa Barbara and Ventura south.

I was glad to see this; Applegate River, Jesse Applegate got a truly horrendous trail named after him, good to see he got a spectacular river also.

M.D. Vaden, that quote from the Environmental Studies Dept. is fascinating, especially what was said about the models all agreeing for rain continuing after this week. I'm assuming that's from a particular university?

I hope you enjoy your trip to see the Redwoods! I went to King's Canyon and Sequoia National Park in 2008, and it was beautiful.

M.D. Vaden,

The Environmental Studies Department where? I am assuming it is also a download from NOAA somewhere.

I will concur that the most destructive possibility in Oregon or California is a protracted series of cold storms that saturate soids and raise streams followed by a strong Pineapple Express. The truly phenomenal storm events of the last century (the 1964 flood of Northwest Californinia, the 1996 flood in Oregon,etc.) were of this type. I sounds like we could also have a risk of a big windstorm, like the Columbus Day storm or the severe storms that ravages Puget Sound the last couple winters.

I will also concur that the NWS does pretty well around here (S. Oregon). With the models, satellite images,etc. they seem to get it right pretty often.

In this case, I would say it is probably wise to batten down the hatches. At the very least have flashlights, batteries, and canned foods in case of a power outage. Things could get pretty hairy over the next couple weeks. Best to all.

John Lindsay is the forecaster for PG&E Diablo Canyon nuke plant, very well respected, although, correction, he did not discuss channel surf levels, let me see where that came from'
Lindsay; Bang! Bang! Bang! storms ahead - John Lindsey - SanLuisObispo.com

Oh, Duh, that came from me, it is hell getting old;
Quote:
then inner waters will experience swells as
high as 15 to 17 feet across the santa barbara channel. This would
bring the potential for surf as high as 20 feet to favored coastal
areas such as ventura...oxnard shores...redondo beach and other
west facing shores.

He got a pretty decent Valley named too I think: Applegate Valley south of Grants Pass. We still have a house on an acre there that we are renting. The mountains are very attractive there. Its a better climate than Grants Pass where hangs a banner over downtown "Its the Climate".

And while looking for the photo - I remembered one lake photo. Even got a lake named Applegate Lake now. The Applegate River heads up into the Rogue River National Forest and Red Buttes Wilderness.

Why?

Native Californians have seen plenty of rain, mudslides, fire, earthquakes,etc. I would hope they know the drill!
