The National Weather Service Hanford showed moderate to heavy rain impacts on January 5.

Over the last year talk of a strong El Niño has circulated the news. Now El Niño is here and storms are predicted to hit the region hard over the next two to three weeks. For more insight on what Central California should expect weather wise we turned to a California weather expert on Valley Edition. Listen to the interview above.
