It's welcome news for the state, which has just endured its driest year in recorded history.

While the rain won't be enough to end the drought, the National Weather Service projects that by Saturday, twin Pacific storms may bring as much as two inches of rain to the coast and several feet of snow to the Sierra.

The first storm is expected on Wednesday and will offer light rains.

But the storm on Friday is expected to drench the entire state for 24 hours.
