Storm Totals: December 4th-5th, 2019

By Reginald Stanley. Posted December 5, 2019, 12:48 PM.



A closed low pressure system over California reeled in moisture from the south Wednesday, bringing rain and high elevation mountain snow to the region before departing to the east by early Thursday morning.

Most of the rain fell during daylight hours throughout Wednesday, with periods of heavy rainfall in the morning and evening. Storm totals were generally consistent, with the majority of WeatherCurrents stations receiving between 3/4 inches and 1.5 inches. The storm's dynamics brought southwest flow over the region, favoring some foothill and mountain locations. The storm was much warmer than last week's storms, owing to moisture being brought into Southern California from the south, resulting in significantly higher snow levels (above 7000 feet). De Luz and Fallbrook led storm totals with amounts of 1.46 inches and 1.34 inches respectively, closely followed by South Temecula with 1.33 inches. A total of 1.27 inches was reported in Temecula Valley's Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington) as well as a close 1.26 inches in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas). Not far from East Highland, 1 inch was reported in Yucaipa (courtesy of Don Kramer). Precipitation totals exceeding 1 inch were also observed in Simi Valley and Pinon Hills.

WeatherCurrents' station in Beaumont (Cherry Valley), southeast of Yucaipa, reported one of the lower storm totals, a mere 0.72 inches. Other WeatherCurrents stations that received less than 1 inch of rain Wednesday included Riverside (both Orangecrest and Presidential Park), Perris, Moreno Valley, San Jacinto, Northwest Murrieta and Wildomar. Northwest Murrieta, typically somewhat wetter than the rest of Murrieta during winter storms, experienced the reverse on Wednesday - compare to Central Murrieta where 1.12 inches was recorded, in contrast to Northwest Murrieta's 0.90 inches. This was primarily due to a small, but stationary band of persistent showers centered over central and southern Murrieta (as well as part of French Valley) late Wednesday evening, while not affecting northern Murrieta or other areas.

Remnant showers trailed off into early Thursday morning as patchy, dense fog formed over parts of the Inland Empire. Partly cloudy weather remained for Thursday under weak high pressure, before another chance of rain returns for the weekend.
