An unusual round of upper level subtropical moisture drawn into Southern California by low pressure resulted in rainfall in the northern areas, and also in Orange County, even while low clouds and fog sat in the lower layers of the atmosphere.

Rain landed mainly in Orange County and the lower Los Angeles basin Saturday morning, and covered an band from San Clemente up to Yorba Linda, 0.04" in Corona, and even up to Pomona.

WeatherCurrents' station in Simi Valley recorded 0.09", most of it early Saturday afternoon. Other locations with rainfall included the high desert, the San Gabriel Mountains, and the San Fernando Valley

The moisture didn't come far enough south for any showers or thunderstorms over the inland valleys in Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties.
