A Wave of Showers: What’s next?

Destiny Quinteros, Staff Writer

Our 2023 semester has officially started and we were welcomed with tons of rain due to a powerful storm that hit California. This rain brought it all wind, rain, and gloomy weather that many of us love and others despise.  Towards the beginning of January there had been news about a Cyclone Bomb forming in the pacific ocean which as anticipated to bring strong winds and rain fall. Yet it was set to move in at a slow pace, they were proven wrong. This ended up being a positive thing since there had been much damage done: mud slides, damaged housing, and flooding in different parts of California. If the storm went as predicted, there would have been more damage affecting the state in destruction. Overall the storm did bring California’s drought status down to a moderate rate.

At the moment we have been looking forward to some chilly days with the sun shining bright, bringing warmth. What type of weather with our students here at MHS looking forward to the most?

There’s a mix of it all, but we did end up getting some light rain this weekend. The forecast seems to be keeping a steady eye upon the sun for the upcoming weeks.
