SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The National Weather Service says the five tornadoes that touched down across Northern California this week tied a single-day record dating to 1996.
Thunderstorms were expected again Tuesday and Wednesday as part of the first series of storms of the season.
Jim Mathews, lead forecaster at the National Weather Service office in Sacramento, said Tuesday that the remaining storms are not expected to produce the same dangerous turbulence.
Monday's five confirmed tornadoes damaged dozens of homes and a handful of commercial buildings across an 80-mile swath of the northern Central Valley stretching from south of Sacramento to near Oroville. No injuries were reported.
It was the highest number of tornadoes in one day since April Fool's Day in 1996, when five tornadoes flattened trees and barns near Stockton.
