Core Of Tropical Storm Hilary Nearing Southern California, Streets Flooding In Los Angeles Automated Transcript By Speak
As we dig deeper into this, what you’ll notice is again, the barometric pressure is increasing as we showed you from the last advisory. Just meaning that it’s weakening, it’s slowed down just to touch and again, those winds are coming on down.I don’t want you to let your guard down because the imagery that you’re seeing below me still shows the impacts that we’re seeing in terms of flooding. And we have just a, a handful of flash flood warnings that are still ongoing. L A for example, second largest city in America dealing with some flash flooding as we speak clearly with the video that you can see under me where we picked up already between a half an inch to an inch of rain. So far with more on the way through the afternoon, the evening and the overnight hours, socal southern California, east of San Diego also seen flash flooding and it’s not just the flash flooding that we’re seeing there, but there’s also rock slides. There are landslide concerns.
Notice the number of storm reports that we’ve seen. A handful of storm reports has already led to. Again, we’ve received reports of not only large boulders in the roadway. So again, the mud slides, the landslides and the rock slides. But also we’ve received reports on top of Big Black Mountain, 84 mile per hour winds. Look at the rain that we’ve picked up so far in Mount Laguna, California. Nearly four inches of rain. Death Valley known for being the hottest place on the planet. Right? Only averages about 1/100 of an inch of rain per year has already picked up over two and a quarter inches or pretty close to it. And the breadth and depth of Hillary I think is what’s really interesting. Notice that from San Diego and just west of Phoenix, it’s the tropical storm wind field that we’re seeing. So southern and western parts of Phoenix toward the western edges of Maricopa County, Yuma Arizona and then up toward Lake had the city and for our friends in San Diego.
Yeah, those are tropical storm force winds that you’re contending with and notice the direction of the wind flow, at least for the next little bit is coming in from the east southeast direction that’s running right up against the San Diego mountains as that happens. Those mountains squeeze out all kinds of moisture and it’s the reason why we’re seeing those impressive rainfall totals that are still stacking up. It’s also one of the reasons why when that wind is funneled through those mountains, kind of like this. If there’s a mountain here and there’s a mountain here and there’s wind running right through those mountains. There’s a squeeze play that takes place. And again, it leads to those impressive uh wind gust speeds of over 75 MPH in Campo California. And then for a friends, as we mentioned in Big Black Mountain, California, over 80 to nearly 85 mile per hour wind gusts for a number of Americans, over 20 million Americans from Los Angeles, California down I five as you’re heading to San Diego and then across interstate eight, we are under tropical storm warnings the first time ever that we’ve seen that in parts of the desert southwest, in Los Angeles, the surrounding communities, Pasadena included in that.
And then notice that because of all the rain that we’ve already seen and it’s only going to increase in duration at least throughout the next say 24 hours or so. I should say 12 to 24 hours from basically Vegas down to San Diego. That red shaded area right here indicates an extreme flash flood threat. Again, we’ve already seen 1 to 2 inches of rain in places like a California of some impressive video coming in from out of there that I’ve seen online, uh, along I eight, about 70 miles or so east of San Diego where we’ve picked up some pretty incredible flooding. And again, that’s gonna be toward the Imperial Valley for friends and family in Palm Springs and then up interstate 15 as you’re heading in the direction of Las Vegas. We’re seeing that flash flood threat. One of the reasons why, even though we’re not talking about demonstrative rain totals, we’re not talking about like 8 to 10 inches that have fallen up to this point yet. We’re still seeing those videos rolling in of street flooding is because the soil out that is basically like concrete, right? When you and the kids are having a water balloon fight on the grass. What happens? The water balloon pops it soaks right in. It’s not a big deal.
You have a water balloon fight on concrete and the balloon pops and that water just sits there, right? And then think about the millions of gallons of water that we’re going to see along the path of Hillary on concrete or on soil that is nearly impermeable, right? It has no place to go, of course, flows down into some of those wash basins into some of the concrete washes in those storm water channels. And that’s where we start to see the flooding concerns, especially when they start to overtop those channels. So how much rain is still expected? Several more inches of rain again, basically in this area. And what you’ll notice is we put our exclusive Fox bottle into motion for you is the fact that that center of circulation we will continue to ride to the North Bakersfield Fresno. If you’re flying in or out of the airport there in Fresno, double check those flights. Because again, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a number of delays, cancellations and all because of that Vegas, same sort of story for you, Reno, the capital, same sort of story. And right along say the Sierra Nevada mountain ranges, I think we will end up seeing a lot of rain. So rain is going to be an issue and it’s one of the reasons why we have millions of Americans as we speak, that are under flood alerts right now by the time we get to tomorrow morning, this is a breath of a sigh of relief, should we say by tomorrow morning and more so into tomorrow afternoon, we will finally sound the all clear in southern California from Los Angeles down I five into San Diego.
Before we get there though. There’s going to be a whole lot of rain. A little bit of wind in there and a flash flood threat that we’re going to have to contend with. So how much more rain is on the way? Los Angeles? That’s 2 to 3 inches. I know and I completely understand if you’re joining us from Chicago, Detroit, Philly, Cleveland. You look at 2 to 3 inches of rain and you’re like, yeah, that’s just any other Tuesday for us. What’s the big deal? 2 to 3 inches of rain in Los Angeles when their monthly average in the month of August in L A is but A trace. So we’re talking about multiple magnitudes of order larger than that 2 to 3 inches of rain in just a what? 24 36 72 hour period that can lead to lots of problems. Palm Springs, California. This is going to be another zone. It’s surrounded by mountains. It’s a beautiful spot if you’ve ever been there. One of the reasons why it’s so picturesque is because of the gorgeous mountains.
The problem though is when all of that rain noticed right here toward uh Monte Valley, that’s about 8 to 12 inches of rain. What happens there? That rain runs down the mountain and then toward the base of the mountains is where all of that begins to congregate and all of that water begins to flow into. So think about the creeks, the rivers, the streams we of course have the San Diego River. That’s a huge collection basin for a lot of that water runoff from the mountain tops and same sort of story in L A. All of these mountains, you’ll see a lot of runoff and so into those concrete washes into those stormwater channels, it’s going to be potentially dangerous and if not deadly to be anywhere near, especially when they start to overtop themselves. So let’s talk a little bit more about the mechanics behind where Hillary is heading. It’s a big dome of high pressure. This thing is responsible, by the way for the, for the immense heat. One story that we really haven’t talked much about just because of the fact that Hillary has taken all the attention is the fact that there’s a big bubble of heat in the central plains in the United States.
It’s on the western edge of that bubble of heat where we have that south to north flow of air and Hillary is basically following and being funneled right through that. And as that happens, you’ll notice that not only from San Diego to L A, but up through Vegas, friends and family, even as far north as Boise, Idaho through Tuesday could be talking about multiple inches of rain. This all compliments of Hillary. Could we see flooding absolutely toward Burns and northeast of Bones, Boise, Idaho and just north of Boise, there is a very real and present danger for flooding and you’ll see that from Marino, Nevada all the way or all the way down to Vegas and everywhere sandwiched in between.
By the time we get to Monday and then into early Tuesday morning, that 24 to 36 hour period, there’s a big flood threat there. And so again, it just means that it’s just a harbinger of what’s to come from salmon down toward Twin Falls, Winnemucca Reno and even east of Redding, California. There is that flash flood threat.
