Manteca, Ripon, Lathrop may get up to 2 inches of rain over three days

Manteca, Ripon, and Lathrop won’t get a huge drenching from the major storm hitting California later tonight.

The National Weather Service, though, does expect between 1.5 and 2 inches of rain to fall over a 72-hoiur period ending Friday night in San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties.

It s enough to warn area residents of roadway ponding and minor flooding in poor drainage areas.

And in some parts of the two counties it could mean small stream flooding.

There also will be a moderate rise in river levels.

Manteca rainfall was at 7.17 inches as of Monday or 101 percent of normal for the date.

Manteca receives 13.35 inches on average between July 1 and June 30. Rainfall for the 12 month period at 53 percent.

Up to 36 inches of snow may fall on the Sierra crest between Sonora Pass (Highway 108) and Tioga Pass (Highway 120).

The snow level Wednesday will be between 6,000 to 7,000 feet on Wednesday, 4,000, to 5,000 feet on Thursday, and 3,000 to 4,000 feet on Friday.
