Since Christmas, no fewer than eight atmospheric rivers have bombarded California. At least 17 deaths have been attributed to the onslaught, which has brought floods, landslides, downed trees. There is a possible pause in sight, but not before several more episodes of heavy precipitation. Rainfall will be steady on Wednesday, but not overly intense. A large cyclone, or low pressure system, was located about 1,000 miles offshore of the Pacific Northwest. Rainfall ahead of an approaching cold front will be mainly confined in a north to south strip.
