A series of wet pacific fronts will be with us until at least Thursday. The frontal wave Sunday night is going to be juicier than first forecasted. Guesstimates: 3-5 cm by Sunday morning, 20-30 cm by Monday morning, 3-5 cm by Tuesday morning, 5-8 cm by Wednesday morning, 8-10 cm by Thursday morning
