Northern California will receive several inches of precipitation through Tuesday due to an atmospheric river, following a series of moisture-laden cyclones.
The approaching storm bears resemblance to the torrential downpour that eradicated the drought in California during the previous winter.
Since last week, a succession of consecutive cyclones have moved through the Pacific Northwest, depositing multiple inches.
The region will experience additional wind and precipitation from a third storm through Tuesday.
Narrow channels in the atmosphere that transport excessive amounts of precipitation are referred to as atmospheric rivers.
A second cyclone soon followed, making landfall in the same region on both Friday and Saturday.
Heavy precipitation and gusty winds accompanied the initial storm in the Pacific Northwest on Wednesday and Thursday of last week.
Currently, a third cyclone is wreaking havoc throughout the region, spanning from northern Washington to California.
Washington and Oregon have been the epicentres of the cyclones, with the Olympic Mountains and Cascades bearing the brunt of the precipitation.
