The Salinas River was roiling today when I drove north. There have been >25” at the headwaters of the Salinas River since October (with about 6” in the past couple of days).
The Nacimiento Reservoir is almost full and is already releasing to the Salinas River. If the Arroyo Seco Watershed gets a stalled storm in the next few hours, it could contribute a substantial load of water.
Is it time to prepare for flooding and start moving equipment?
The next few days are going to be nail-biters as waves of rain keeps surge through the area!
