Frequently Asked Questions

Updated May, 2017

Below are the questions that are asked the most about the Riverside weather site. Didn't find your question here? Ask!

Where are the Riverside weather stations located?
This was our first station in the Riverside Area. It was in the Canyon Crest area, on an office building at the shopping center near Central Avenue and Canyon Crest Boulevard. Since 2012, we have a station operating in the Presidential Park area, near Lincoln and St. Lawrence, which is now the primary station for Riverside. Another Riverside station has operated in the Orangecrest neighborhood since 2017. Another former station was across the Santa Ana River in Jurupa Valley.
Are there other online weather stations in Riverside?
There is an agricultural weather station nearby at the University of California, Riverside agriculture groves which has been in place since 1985. Registration is required to view the data.

Other local weather stations are operated at Riverside's airports by the National Weather Service. Riverside Municipal Airport is northwest of Canyon Crest in the Arlington area, and March Air Reserve Base is southeast, slightly south of Moreno Valley.

Your weather data seems warm in the winter, warmer than where I live (elsewhere in Riverside). Why?
The area around the university, especially Canyon Crest, experiences higher lows than the rest of the surrounding communities. The area regularly polls warmer during the morning hours than the Riverside Municipal Airport or March Air Reserve Base, especially during the winter, when it is one of the warmest spots in western Riverside County.
When has it snowed in the Riverside area?
The last time was on January 12, 2007. There is also documentation of snowfall from 1947. There are probably other intervening events that we haven't mentioned here; if you know of one, please tell us.
