Storm Totals: March 5th-7th, 2019

By Reginald Stanley. Posted March 7, 2019, 5:23 PM.



A Pacific storm targeted Southern California again this week, bringing thunderstorms and rain to much of the region between Tuesday and Thursday morning.

Isolated showers began on Tuesday, transitioning into steadier rain after midnight Wednesday. Widespread thunder was reported throughout Wednesday, as well as lightning strikes in the San Jacinto Mountains to the east. A burst of heavy showers occurred in parts of the Inland Empire just after midnight Thursday, continuing into around 2 AM that morning. Precipitation totals were generally higher at locations to the north, with the storm ignoring typical orographic lift patterns that shape most Pacific storms affecting the region. Pinon Hills, normally one of the driest stations in the WeatherCurrents network, enjoyed a boastful total of 1.61 inches through Thursday. Simi Valley was not far behind, with a cumulative total of 1.15 inches. Most other WeatherCurrents stations recorded totals between 2/10 of an inch and 3/4 of an inch. The burst of heavy showers early Thursday morning helped boost previously low totals in the Temecula Valley and De Luz-Fallbrook regions. De Luz placed third with 0.72 inches, followed by 0.68 inches in Riverside (Presidential Park).

Additional totals included 0.68 inches in Temecula Valley's Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington), 0.60 inches in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas), and 0.52 inches in Yucaipa (courtesy of Don Kramer). In the WeatherCurrents network, stations on the lower end of the storm totals lineup included Anza with just 0.20 inches, French Valley with only 0.21 inches and Northwest Murrieta with 0.28 inches. De Luz, Fallbrook, Temecula, Central Murrieta and Hemet all benefited from heavy showers early Thursday morning. Residual moisture had mostly cleared out from the region by mid-day Thursday.
