The band of rainfall began moving westward in the 2pm hour Wednesday, and was accompanied by strong, gusty winds from the east. Dust was evident in spots, especially in the 3pm hour between Newport Road in Menifee and Highway 74 in Perris.

Measurable rainfall was reported in Sun City on Sunday, Lake Elsinore on Monday and in Temecula and Murrieta on Tuesday. Many areas received spatterings of rainfall on the days surrounding Labor Day.
