Storm Totals: March 9th-13th, 2021

By Reginald Stanley. Posted March 13, 2021, 10:15 PM.



A cold, slow-moving low pressure system brought thunderstorms and mountain snow to the region this week, as well as hail to some areas.

Rain began falling as early as late Tuesday night in some communities, with the bulk of the rain falling on Wednesday and Thursday. Thunderstorms produced hail in parts of the Inland Empire, particularly on Thursday. Storm totals varied considerably, with totals ranging as high as 1.80 inches in East Hemet to just 0.10 inches in Pinon Hills. The eastern valleys benefited greatly from persistent thunderstorms on Friday evening, pushing many of those communities well over an inch of rainfall. Beaumont (Cherry Valley), Perris, and Moreno Valley also recorded relatively wet storm totals. In East Highland, 1.78 inches was reported through Saturday (courtesy of Peter Michas), as well as a total of 1.17 inches in Yucaipa (courtesy of Don Kramer). Most other WeatherCurrents stations recorded totals between 0.6 inches and 1 inch by Saturday evening. In Temecula Valley's Wine Country, 0.66 inches was reported (courtesy of Jim Sappington), close to nearby Temecula's total of 0.70 inches.

The storm provided some relief to a thirsty region amid a dry winter. Season totals among all active WeatherCurrents stations remain under 10 inches, with some locations still well below normal rainfall for the year. A fast-moving storm could bring light precipitation to the region on Monday.
