California is bracing for yet another "Pineapple Express" storm (Part-2)

Two to four feet (0.61 to 1.2 meters) of snow is probable in mountain ranges higher than seven thousand feet (2,134 meters).

The National Weather Service predicts that this storm will have the greatest impact on portions of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. 

Heavy rains are expected to fall on the south-facing slopes of the Transverse Ranges, and the soil that was already saturated from winter storms earlier will certainly make flooding worse.

Parts of Ventura County and portions of Santa Barbara County, including communities near wildfire burn scars and along the coast of Santa Barbara City, were placed under evacuation orders. The waters will be more dangerous due to the high winds.

In anticipation of potential bad weather, NASCAR rescheduled Saturday night's The Clash at the Coliseum. Because of the predicted torrential rains and flooding that would start on Sunday, NASCAR suddenly revised the schedule and just heat races would be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday.

The eight-race program that was supposed to take place on Sunday at the Santa Anita racetrack in Arcadia, which is northeast of downtown Los Angeles, has been postponed. Two graded stakes races, the $100,000 Las Virgenes and the San Marcos, were postponed by the park for next Saturday.

El Nino, which alters global weather patterns through the transient warming of some regions of the Pacific, is likely to bring more storms to California this year, increasing the likelihood of damage.

According to studies, the waves off the coast of California are getting larger as a result of rising sea levels caused by global warming. At the same time, the shore is experiencing its greatest tides of the year.
