All active WeatherCurrents stations exceed entire season averages

By Reginald Stanley. Posted February 28, 2019, 11:16 PM.



Amid one of the coolest and wettest Februaries in recent history across Southern California, all fifteen active WeatherCurrents stations exceeded their entire seasonal rainfall averages this month.

A wet winter across the region, especially February, brought all active WeatherCurrents stations not only into double-digit season totals but also exceeding entire season averages for those stations. The highest season total in the WeatherCurrents network is currently held by De Luz, with a season total of 21.55 inches as of February 28th. This exceeds the station's seasonal average of 14.62 inches, a difference of nearly 7 inches. Since the station became operational in 2005, only two other seasons were wetter - 2010-11 with 32.32 inches, and 2016-17 with 27.07 inches. In Temecula, where precipitation records date back to 2000, the current season is the fourth wettest season there. Temecula's current 2018-19 season total stands at 16.82 inches, behind 2016-17's 17.40 inches, 2010-11's 22.98 inches, and the number one spot held by 2004-05 with a massive total of 32.63 inches.

Season totals will only increase further as yet another pattern change to wet weather is approaching. Lake Elsinore's current season total of 20.72 inches is nearly double their seasonal average of 10.60 inches. In East Highland, contributor Peter Michas reports a current season total of 20.02 inches. In Temecula Valley's Wine Country, contributor Jim Sappington reported a season total of 18.22 inches (as of February 22). Temecula's current season total of 16.82 inches far exceeds Temecula's season total during this same time last year, when it was only 4.60 inches in the rather dry 2017-18 water year. Due to an excess of drier than normal rainy seasons this decade, season averages are likely skewed one to several inches below where they should be.

Here are the current season totals for the WeatherCurrents network and associates, as of February 28:
