Storm Totals: March 11th-12th, 2019

A low pressure system with a subtropical tap over northern Baja California funneled rain and mountain snow at the region Monday and early Tuesday this week.

Following several days of continuously cool, windy and mostly cloudy weather, the first wave of subtropical moisture hit the region late Monday night. Snow totals gradually lowered to between 4,500 and 5,000 feet overnight as temperatures cooled further. Precipitation totals for the storm varied considerably, ranging from no measurable rain at all in Simi Valley to 1.03 inches in the normally dry Pinon Hills. In the Inland Empire, Riverside (Presidential Park), Moreno Valley, and Beaumont (Cherry Valley) recorded storm totals in the lower range, between 0.12 and 0.19 inches. A total of 0.12 inches was also reported in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas). Portions of the Temecula Valley generally received higher totals, ranging from 0.40 inches in Temecula to 0.60 inches in northwest Murrieta. A total of 0.38 inches was reported in Temecula Valley's Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington). The eastern valleys, as well as the typically wet communities of De Luz and Fallbrook, fell within the 0.20 to 0.40 inch range.

Showers had largely missed large portions of Los Angeles and areas to the northwest, including Simi Valley. By late Tuesday morning, most of the remaining activity was minor and confined to the mountains. The storm continued a relatively wet rainy season to date, however a dry pattern was expected to take place following the storm's departure Tuesday.
