Storm Totals: March 11th, 2016

The third storm in a relatively busy March thus far brought waves of rain, wind and mountain snow to the region Friday.

A cold front swept down the state Friday, arriving in Southern California by early afternoon. Cold winds accompanied the storm. The first wave of the front was by far the strongest, bringing continuous heavy rain while it passed through the region Friday afternoon. By Friday evening, the cold front had left residual showers and blustery winds in its wake, with the last of the showers dissipating by early Saturday morning. Snow levels in the mountains quickly sunk to between 4,500 and 5,000 feet above sea level Friday evening.

Precipitation totals were generally consistent across the majority of WeatherCurrents stations and communities, with a number of stations recording identical totals near 1/3 of an inch. Simi Valley recorded the highest total at 0.63 inches, much higher than the rest of the WeatherCurrents stations. Simi Valley is located northwest of Los Angeles and was subject to longer periods of rain than the rest of the stations. Perris recorded the lowest measurable total with 0.14 inches, while Anza did not record any measurable rainfall.

Other notable totals include 0.36 inches in Temecula Valley Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington), 0.33 inches in East San Jacinto (courtesy of Monty Parrott) and 0.22 inches in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas).
