Southern California is bracing for another round of powerful and potentially destructive storms this week.

Prediction

A powerful storm system is expected to move in from Sunday evening, with heavy showers and strong winds that could continue through Wednesday, said Robbie Munroe, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

A flood watch applies to many regions of the Zuidland on Monday and Tuesday.

Even more intense rains. “The consequences include flooding in cities and small streams. possible flooding of rivers and mud and debris flows in and around recent fire areas,” the NWS said in a tweet.

Thunderstorms give way to sunny skies.

Another “more widespread, stronger storm” is predicted to descend over the region next weekend, Munroe said.

Effects

Munroe said this upcoming storm system will bring “at least as much rain, if not more” as the one that rocked California last week, causing flooding and mudslides, toppling trees and knocking out power to homes. Rivers and creeks, already swollen by previous storms, overflowed their banks.
