I'm surprised that Hurricane Seymour remnants are forecast to enter Southern California by the weekend and participate in the general rain fiesta. The Eastern Pacific has more hurricanes than anywhere else on Earth but very few remnants actually make it here from the tropics due to contrary winds and the forbidding stretch of cold water. All of this happiness is happening before the rainy season usually starts, around November 1st.
The purpose of this California storm is to rack up rainfall totals (0.62 inches today, so far, at Sac Exec Airport). Since it's before the rainfall season typically starts, I'm reminded of the movie 'Clerks' - it's not even supposed to be here today.
Fourth wettest October on record, with more to come.
