Placerville, CA — **IMPORTANT STORM INFORMATION**

The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services is issuing the following information in conjunction with NOAA - National Weather Service (https://www.facebook.com/NWSSacramento/).

Prepare Now for Significant Rain and Flooding This Weekend-Early Next Week

An atmospheric river will take aim for California this weekend with heavy precipitation, high snow levels and soils that are already saturated from recent storms. Moderate precipitation starts Saturday (7th), but the brunt of storm will be Sunday and Monday. Majority of the precipitation will fall as rain in the mountains as snow levels rise above 8000 feet. This is going to be some of the more significant flooding we've seen in the past decade...areas may flood that haven't seen impacts for several years. Use the break in the weather late Thursday and Friday to prepare. Keep in mind that flooding will take several days to recede in some areas after the rain stops.
