Flooding rains come to SoCal

Among the first casualties of the storm that is beginning its path through the United States was the turf at Petco Park in San Diego.

The leading edge of cold air failed to move quickly from a line from near Las Vegas to San Diego, leading to torrential rain in southern California today. There is still rain falling in the desert across Arizona and southern California, and in a region with poor filtration and drainage, there will likely be some spots with worse outcomes than soggy baseball fields overnight tonight.
