Another chance of rainfall this weekend unless the storm track is well offshore like the last one! :o Some places got abundant rainfall while others were nearly bone-dry!

1.3" of rain at my place. The hillside is starting to absorb better now. With another good rain the rock hillside will all be charged up with water and will flow continuously down the canyon creeks until Spring. This early rainy season is great! Hopefully we won't get a drought right in the middle of it, which often does happen.

I also measured 1.35 from yesterday's storm and now have over 5 inches this rain year [starting in July]. The hills are green and the fire danger lessens as each week passes.

Once again the cold front passing through the SF Bay area fell apart and I only got a trace of rain. The good news is there are no freezing temps. forecast for the next week and it's suppose to warm up some next week. Last year over Thanksgiving we experienced the coldest temps of the season.

A troubling atmospheric signal perhaps. La Nina can be very dry. Recent storms have been staying out over the Pacific w/ only light or no rainfall on land. Your weak storm turned out to be no storm in southern California but rainfall totals sre still above normal overall.

Ironically, it has been in the 80's down here. Yesterday was 88F\ 31.1C in Lake Forest; 87F\ 30.5C Ocotillo Wells; hot in both the desert and coast.

This warmth will come crashing to an end in a few days as an upper low retrogrades into California from Montana. Strong winds and maybe some light rain but most importantly, it will get cold at night.
