With the first significant storm of the winter season targeting the Southwest, many residents may be wondering if the weather pattern is finally flipping with more needed rain and mountain snow in the offering.

The storm track will shift back to the north with a couple bouts of rain and mountain snow expected to target the Northwest.

Aside from the concern for flooding and mudslides in the burn areas and widespread travel delays, a turn to wet weather would benefit the Southwest.

“The storm track may shift back southward and impact California starting around Jan. 15-16,” he said.
