Storm Totals: November 20th-22nd, 2013 (updated)

By Reginald Stanley. Posted November 23, 2013, 3:07 PM.



A Pacific storm with a subtropical tap brought showery weather to the region over the past few days. The storm was the second of the month and third of this Fall. Due to the showery nature of the storm, rain totals were widely variable, with up to almost two inches in San Bernardino and as low as 0.15" in Wildomar. The height of the storm was Thursday, when most stations recorded their greatest daily rainfall from the storm. Some areas also reported gusty northeast winds, an unusual component of this storm.

The San Bernardino and Riverside valleys were hardest hit, particularly by a strong formation of intense cells that bombarded the area Thursday afternoon. San Bernardino recorded the most rainfall with 1.99 inches total. Riverside's Presidential Park and Canyon Crest communities, which are both normally on the drier side of storms, each received rain amounts of 1.64" and 1.33", respectively. Mud slides, street flooding and downed power lines were reported in the area Thursday afternoon. Due to problems with the rain gauge on-site, Moreno Valley precipitation totals are not yet available. Early reports from the owner of the site (via manual rain gauge) indicate that at least 1.55" inches fell there as of Thursday evening. We'll update the information as soon as it becomes available.

Other high rain totals include 1.60" in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas) and 0.87" in Beaumont (Cherry Valley).

Most other communities fell between 1/4 and 3/4 of an inch, within predictions. Communities on the drier side of the storm included Lake Elsinore with 0.26", Anza with 0.22", and Wildomar with only 0.15".

The weather is forecast to warm up slightly over the next few days, but stay cool in general. There may be another chance of showers around Thanksgiving. Seasonal rainfall-to-date for most communities is running somewhat below average.
