Storm Totals: February 9th-10th, 2020

By Reginald Stanley. Posted February 10, 2020, 11:55 PM.



A closed low pressure system from the north brought showers and mountain snow to the region Sunday and early Monday morning. The majority of precipitation fell on Sunday.

Storm totals were mostly around 1/4 inch or less. WeatherCurrents' station in Fallbrook recorded the highest two-day total, with 0.34 inches. A total of 0.31 inches followed in central Murrieta, where more rain fell than at WeatherCurrents' station in northwest Murrieta - an atypical pattern, as more often than not the opposite is true. WeatherCurrents' stations in Anza, De Luz, Beaumont (Cherry Valley), Perris, and Riverside (Orangecrest) all managed to record 0.25 inches or more by Monday morning. In East Highland, a total of 0.21 inches was reported (courtesy of Peter Michas) as well as a total of 0.20 inches in Temecula Valley's Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington). On the drier side of the storm, WeatherCurrents' stations in Simi Valley and Pinon Hills - both north of Los Angeles - failed to record any measurable rainfall Sunday or Monday. A total of 0.10 inches was reported in Yucaipa (courtesy of Don Kramer). Lake Elsinore and Wildomar managed to record 0.14 and 0.16 inches, respectively. WeatherCurrents' station in Riverside (Presidential Park) remained offline due to currently unknown causes.

Rounds of showers produced rain throughout Sunday as moisture wrapped around the cutoff low. This cutoff low moved south and east of Southern California on Monday, leaving gusty northeasterly winds in its wake. To the north, Simi Valley was particularly vulnerable to these winds on Sunday. Following a slight warming trend this week under weak high pressure, an additional low pressure system may bring a chance of light showers late in the week.
