By Reginald Stanley. Posted March 17, 2020, 3:48 PM.

A cold front, much colder than last week's storms, brought rain and mountain snow to the region late Monday and early Tuesday.

Precipitation totals were greatest in Simi Valley, northwest of Los Angeles, while the rest of the WeatherCurrents network wasn't nearly as wet. The main front arrived in the region late Monday afternoon, dumping most of its rain further north, where Simi Valley recorded 0.77 inches on Monday alone (with additional precipitation the following day). Further south, the remaining WeatherCurrents stations recorded less than 1/2 inch, where northwest Murrieta led with 0.48 inches through Tuesday afternoon. A greater total of 0.51 inches was reported in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas), as well as 0.44 inches in Yucaipa (courtesy of Don Kramer). WeatherCurrents' stations in Fallbrook, De Luz, Moreno Valley, San Jacinto, and Perris also recorded between 1/3 and 1/2 inch from the storm. In Temecula Valley's Wine Country, a total of 0.28 inches was reported by on Monday-Tuesday (courtesy of Jim Sappington). Riverside, Anza and Pinon Hills were the driest in the WeatherCurrents network.

Snow levels in the mountains lowered to approximately 4,000 feet above sea level overnight into early Tuesday morning. Residual showers remained in some areas as of Tuesday afternoon, mostly in the mountains. A second low pressure system is forecast to develop over California and Nevada, bringing additional chances of showers into Thursday.
