Above: Hurricane Norbert (Category 1) currently near the Southern tip of Baja Mexico, heading North towards Southern California , September 3 2014 2pm CDT
An end to the Southern California drought in sight?
Hurricane Norbert (currently going into Category 1 hurricane status) is heading up the Western coast of Baja Mexico.
Professionals have the storm track staying a steady Northwest along the coast of Mexico, topping out near a Category 2 storm, heading towards the Southwestern coast of the United States.
If Norbert’s pattern holds, Southern California may be seeing the edge of a tropical storm. This would be good news, if the rain which accompanies these tropical systems makes its way to SoCal !
