An unusual summer storm arriving Monday could break rainfall records in Sacramento and many other areas of Northern California.

Officials at the National Weather Service said Friday that Sacramento could see an inch of rain or more on Monday. Areas of the northern Sacramento Valley could see 2 inches, and the North Coast could get as much as 4 inches.

The wettest June day on record in downtown Sacramento was June 4, 1993, which saw 0.81 inches of rain, said Johnnie Powell, a forecaster at the National Weather Service.

Hurray for rain in California. We could use it. Though not the way Canmore got theirs. A nice good soaking would be great.

I've got a garden, but it's in the northeast where we get consistent rain.

Would a deluge be problematic for Central Valley produce growers?

Come on EC.. take one for your state. We need the rain. Wash that car.. haha..

To doubly make sure it rains I'm leaving the 2 cords of wood I have spent the last week splitting uncovered.

I'm trying to talk some friends into getting on a wall without a rainfly..

What else can we do to make certain it rains? :-)

Doesn't look like it's going to push down south, though...too bad. We could use anything we could get.

John M,
I have no qualms with the rain. I just have to mitigate problems, as I live in a flood zone if my storm drains aren't clear of the sh*tloads of leaves that were leading into and around it.

I was just joking with you ec. I totally understand about storm drains. My sense of humor leans towards the quirks of humans who believe things like washing cars will make it rain. I was kind of hoping others would chip in with the weird stuff people believe. I swear to you though, when I lived in southern california, it would rain sure as shootin if I washed and waxed my car. 100% haha.. Another surefire way to get it to rain was to go camping without a tent. with cotton sleeping bags. heh heh..

John M,
Actually, you caught the gist of my pun mentioning washing my car. However, my car NEEDS washing after this dry ass period. Damn dust & pollen fo' days.
