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

Wind is keeping temperatures much warmer here this evening. Only 71F at 6:30 PM compared to 59F at the same time yesterday.

 

I wonder why we had wind Wednesday and today, but none yesterday.

Temps did end up cooling down here, although it took a while.

 

Still very warm in Simi Valley and higher elevations, winds still blowing there.

I was surprised to see the ground wet outside just now. Nothing on radar, but at least now I get to mark Trace for today's precipitation.

Interesting watching the temperature plummet around 4 AM right when the rain started.

Also, next couple of nights are predicted to be the coldest of the winter so far:

Wind blowing quite strongly here. Cold Santa Ana winds suck.

 

I prefer them over warm Santa Ana winds. At least it can cool down at night, unlike during the warmer events.

 

Winds stopped blowing here abruptly at 7 PM.

It got down to 38F at 1 AM here, but then the winds kicked up again and the temp went up to 42F ever since. Don't think we'll be hitting that projected low of 29F this morning after all.

The wind has been so noisy today that I can't hear a movie I'm trying to watch at full volume. My location is not typically prone to winds, this has been the windiest last couple of weeks here in a long time.

Wind is supposed to die down tonight. Hopefully it does.

 

If it does, it should get much colder tonight.

 

I had to drive over to Perris this afternoon, and my car was getting whipped around by strong crosswinds on the 215 freeway.

No wind to speak of tonight, thankfully. Which has allowed the temperature to consistently plummet since yesterday evening.

 

29.8F and still falling.

Same amount of daylight as November 3 today, the date of the earliest solar noon and the first day of standard time. Everything is shifted about 30 minutes later today, however, with the latest solar noon coming next Tuesday.

 

Much nicer to have the light in the afternoon than the morning.

Marine layer is deepening ahead of tomorrow's cold storm.

 

I wasn't expecting to see dense fog when I got out of work just an hour ago here. Slightly drizzling, too.
