Cold, wet Christmas week

By Reginald Stanley. Posted December 24, 2015, 2:40 PM.



A series of cold storms have hit the region this week as the polar jet stream continues to target Southern California.

Several storm fronts brought showers to the region over the course of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Most of the rain fell on Monday and Tuesday. Cold, variably cloudy conditions have followed since.

Rain totals varied, ranging from just over 1/10 of an inch in some locations to 0.94 inches in the typically wet Fallbrook. De Luz and Simi Valley also recorded relatively high totals. Anza, French Valley, and other portions of the inland valleys were on the drier side of the storm, possibly rain shadowed by the Santa Ana Mountains. Rain gauges at WeatherCurrents stations in Menifee and Wildomar remained inoperable during the storm, and are due to be replaced soon. WeatherCurrents' Moreno Valley rain gauge was clogged during the storm, manual totals are available and will be substituted for that location. Only Pinon Hills, north of Los Angeles and located on the southern edge of the Mojave Desert - did not record any measurable rainfall.

WeatherCurrents contributors also submitted notable totals - 0.34 inches in Temecula Valley's Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington), 0.31 inches in East San Jacinto (courtesy of Monty Parrott), and 0.20 inches in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas). Season totals to date for the 2015-2016 water year were average to slightly below average for most communities.

Additional chances of rain were predicted for late Christmas Eve and early Christmas day. Cold temperatures were expected to continue into at least next week.
