Weather may have been boring, but at least tonight's sunset was not boring.  

Congratulations on your new job at NWS Phoenix! Hopefully the region will get some active monsoonal activity this summer!   I haven't posted much on here lately, because the weather hasn't been too ex

Reg must be enjoying the overcast skies.

 

I am, although I could not access this site for most of today until now for some reason.

 

I ended up with 0.20" from the rain this morning, which is wonderful given that it was more likely that we wouldn't see any measurable precipitation at all.

Did some work that required the site be down. Should be good to go. Took it down when it was just a couple people on.

There was a year some decades ago where the majority of the season's rainfall fell in December, in Downtown L.A.

Maybe we can get a pattern change in February.

Helped replace parts for the Riverside (Orangecrest) and Perris weather stations today. It was a beautiful day before the high clouds moved in.

Marine layer just filled in the Temecula Valley. Rare to see dense fog forming this far inland so early in the evening.

Unrelated to the current weather, but something interesting: I dug up the minute-by-minute data from my weather station during the night of December 30th-31st, 2014 when rain transitioned to full-blown snow a low elevations here inland. The snow stopped falling sometime after 4 AM, everything after that was just snow slowly melting into the tipping bucket.

Winds are calm here now, but we got hit much harder than usual with this kind of wind as well. I thought the winds were supposed to strengthen tonight.

We had a great stretch of storms from late November until just after Christmas here in Socal, and the pattern abruptly shifted into a drier pattern since then. It is really starting to get boring now at what should be the wettest time of year for this area.

Nice to hear from you, Dan. It's been quite a while.

Agreed, at least activity is always pretty high on the weatherwest blog.
