Jason Clapp is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

"Any rain is important, obviously, so we'll take whatever we can get," says Clapp.

He says these storms won't end the state's ongoing drought, but they will bring significant precipitation. 

"We're still looking for a couple feet of snow at the highest elevations -- through the whole series -- the two storms," says Clapp. "We're still expecting a couple of inches of rain over the mountains and anywhere from half to an inch and a half in the valley, depending on where you're at."

Clapp says thunderstorms are possible, especially tomorrow, along with high winds and blowing snow in the Sierra.

He says more wet weather may be on the way next week, as well.
