California storms: The dramatic view from space

WeatherNASANational Weather Service

The rainstorm that hit Southern California has generated photos of flooded streets and small mud flows in fire-ravaged hillside neighborhoods.

But some of the most dramatic images have come from space.

The National Weather Service, NASA and other organizations have released images showing the size of the storm as it churns in the Pacific Ocean.

Here are some examples.

While some parts of Southern California have seen the sun peek through the clouds Friday morning, officials say more rain is on the way.

Between Friday and Saturday night, weather officials expect two to four inches of rain to fall on the coasts and valleys and four to eight inches in the foothills and mountains. In general, the rains move into the Central Coast and then move down into Ventura County and then Los Angeles County.

The weather system is dropping more rain on L.A. in one event than it has seen in at least three years.

After the strong rains Friday afternoon, there will be a lull before more rain Saturday morning. Stronger showers are possible Saturday afternoon before tapering off Sunday.
