More rain and snow for Fresno and other flooded areas. Is the rainy season over yet?

More rain and snow are headed to the San Joaquin Valley and California mountains, regions already inundated with heavy precipitation, forecasters said Monday.

Fresno and other parts of the Valley could see as much as an inch of rainfall beginning Tuesday morning and through late night Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service in Hanford.

“It’s not nearly as powerful as the one we saw March 10,” meteorologist Andy Bollenbacher said.

The storm from more than two weeks ago caused flooding and roadway havoc in the Valley and Sierra Nevada.

While Yosemite Valley is in store for around 6 inches of snow, Tioga Pass and Shaver Lake could see more than 2 feet, according to meteorologists.

Forecasters said the blowing snow could lead to “major to extreme” impacts in the Sierra, where travel would be near impossible. Road closures should be expected.

Yet another rainstorm comes after California has been pelted with at least a dozen atmospheric rivers going back to late December, and recording precipitation numbers not seen in about four decades.

Bollenbacher said the storm this week has atmospheric river characteristics.

Officials in Fresno County have said residents can expect a drawn out effort to keep floodwaters out of many communities.

Evacuation warnings

Evacuation warnings remained in place for many communities east of Avocado Lake, according to a map from the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Kings and Tulare counties have been hit particularly hard and many local leaders fear the potential pooling of Tulare Lake. The south Valley continues to see evacuation orders near the lake bed.

As the weather warms in the state, the heavy snowpack in the Sierra will melt and make its way down to the Valley, officials have noted.

There is a chance of lingering showers into next week, but most of the weather headed into the state from the northwest is colder and drier, Bollenbacher said.

That comes with little rainfall, and the season looks to be letting up, he said.

“It’s not coming to an end, but it’s slowing down,” he said.
