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

Beautiful clear day today, went for a pleasant walk.

I ended with 1.34" shortly before midnight. I'm more than satisfied with that. Drove up to Anza east of Temecula earlier today, snow is still on the ground above 3200 FT. Very cold and windy up t

Rain appears to be stopping for now. I'm at 1.28" for the day, although additional showers cannot be ruled out for now according to radar.

Drove up to Anza east of Temecula earlier today, snow is still on the ground above 3200 FT. Very cold and windy up there. I took these pictures at about 3500 FT.

I picked up 2.05" here in Orange from this storm. 

I thought that I had posted my total here already, unless it is on the previous page.

By the way on the afternoon of December 28, a line of thunderstorms here in Orange dumped very heavy rain, a coating of hail like I had never seen before here, and there was also frequent lightning. I posted some pictures of my yard from the storm over on Weather West.

Apologies, I didn't see your message before. I'll add your total to the latest storm totals story on WeatherCurrents. Do you also happen to have a season total?

Latest forecast discussion from NWS San Diego gave me a chuckle:

Quote

Inkeeping with the theme of the season, it looks as though we`ll be 
relegated to watching the northern half of the West Coast get  
soaked, patiently awaiting our turn. Still have several months to 
make up for the dry start though, so let`s not get too 
disillusioned!  

2020 is complete and so is my daily temperature and precipitation graph for the year.

It’s dead as a door nail here.

Temperatures are remaining above average with no rain in sight. We've had a few Januarys like this in the recent past, hopefully it passes and February will be wetter.

Finally a chance of showers next week, around Tuesday. Looks weak but I'll take it.

Incredibly windy earlier today. Tree limbs and other debris all over the place.

Had some sprinkles just now, however.

In the past 12 hours The Euro, the v16 GFS, and the Canadian have all shown snowfall in the Inland Empire next week. We got some flurries in isolated spots in February 2019, but as far as I know nothing stuck below 2000ft. The last significant snow event we've gotten here was in December 2014, but that event was driven by evaporative cooling driving snow levels way lower than they would have otherwise. Next week's system doesn't have that. It'll just be relying on cold air, which makes me much more skeptical that it'll actually pan out. It's just so hard for it to get that cold down here with enough moisture for snow. Still excited to watch this just for its potential.

NWS San Diego forecast discussion mentioning the possibility of low elevation snow (>1500 ft) early next week. It's still a few days out, so confidence remains low.

Rain finally got going around 10 AM this morning, and has been mostly consistent since then. 0.34" here and slowly rising.

43F here right now with light rain, which is rather cold here for the middle of the afternoon. It did manage to briefly hit 51F at noon, however.
