  1. Looks like a smudge on the camera / smartphone lens.
  2. 2.16" fell here in Orange with this last storm from Friday night to Sunday night, bringing my backyard season to date total to 20.44" (July 1 - June 30) and 17.45" (October 1 - September 30). It appears that I received close to what Anti Marine Layer received. I don't know what happened to Orcutt, but maybe the AR either didn't stick around as long up there or the storm gained strength south of Point Conception. I do know that areas in and around the windward side of the Transverse ranges can really score when the flow is coming out of the SW as it did with this last storm.
  3. We also need a cloud icon to represent the marine layer and other cloudy weather. I think that icon would be used to the max in this thread, especially during May Gray / June Gloom season!!
  4. That cell passed just to the west of me in Orange. I heard continuous thunder while that storm was going by, but really didn't see much lightning except for a flicker or two. I don't think I have ever heard that much thunder before without seeing the lightning that goes with it!
  5. The flow pattern with the moisture coming in from the east and northeast is like that of a monsoon pattern, but the synoptic pattern is different. This is being caused by a cutoff low over AZ circulating moisture counterclockwise into our area, while the monsoon pattern involves moisture and occasional disturbances circulating clockwise around the 4 Corners High.
  6. Wow! Was that caused by strong winds uprooting a tree, or was the tree suffering from root rot and easily fell over as a result?
  7. 0.60" fell here in Orange with this last storm (from yesterday to today) bringing my backyard season to date total to 17.96" (July 1 - June 30) and 14.97" (October 1 - September 30).
  8. I hope that it is ultimately decided that we stay on DST year-round, rather than Standard Time.
  9. 0.45" fell here in Orange with this last storm bringing my backyard season to date total to 17.36" (July 1 - June 30) and 14.37" (October 1 - September 30).
  10. Today was the warmest day here in Orange in quite some time thanks to some weak Santa Ana winds. It was just mainly breezy in my area with nothing extremely gusty.
  11. 0.67" fell here in Orange with last night's storm bringing my backyard season to date total to 14.57" (July 1 - June 30) and 11.58" (October 1 - September 30).
  12. I wonder if some of the recent homeless are those lost their homes during the Lahaina Fire by any chance?
  13. I received a total of 5.03" here in Orange from last Saturday evening to early this morning! This doesn't count tonight's storm, which I will post as a separate total when it comes to an end.
  14. I am surprised that there aren't more from CA on this forum, but Weather West (WW) has a much larger CA based audience. The fact there are more people on WW is why I post much more often there than I do here. It would be nice to have more people on here, but yet I wouldn't want to see WW lose anyone, either.
  15. I checked my rain gauge earlier tonight here in Orange and was at 3.35" and counting since Saturday evening.
