Re: [californiadisasters] On This Date In California Weather History (March 24)



NWS San Diego covers SoCal, while NWS Hanford covers CenCal west and NWS Las Vegas covers CenCal east and NWS Phoenix covers SE California. NWS Reno covers the Sierra crest and east portion of California while NWS Monterey/San Francisco takes care of the Bay Area and points south to the Monterey/SLO Co. line. That leaves NWS Eureka, NWS Medford, NWS Sacramento, and NWS Los Angeles/Oxnard not contributing. Nonetheless, the ones who do collectively cover most of the state.
