5:13 pm
we have the storm system tonight through saturday morning. then another chance by monday morning. that's about a quarter to a half inch. and then by next wednesday, another quarter to a half inch. none of these storms look overly strong. it's just going to continue that wet weather in the forecast. before we leave you tonight, i wanted to go ahead and compare what we have seen so far to the '97-'98 el nino. when you lookatogen specifically, we're doing better than 1998. currently, 1.60 inches in san jose. in 1998, at this time, we had 1.35. so we're already beginning to see our averages higher than what we had during that very strong event in 1998. and it looks like what we ended up with in january of 1998, 4.81 inches, we likely will hit that and maybe even top it by the end of the month, as we have a total of seven systems coming our way over the next 14 days. so more great news, as we look
