Periods of heavy rain and wind Thanksgiving Day

By Reginald Stanley. Posted November 28, 2019, 7:56 PM.

The second of two cold fronts arrived Thanksgiving Day across the region, bringing much heavier rain and wind than Wednesday's cold front, as well as colder temperatures.

Heavy rain began falling Thursday morning, with a particularly heavy band of rain sweeping through the Inland Empire between 9 and 10 AM. Temperatures gradually fell throughout the day, with many inland locations recording abnormally cold high temperatures for late November, many with high temperatures below 50 degrees - typically an occurrence reserved for rare cold storms between December and February, if they occur at all in a given winter. An additional heavy band of rain moved through the region Thursday afternoon, followed by yet another rain band Thursday evening after 6 PM. Severe thunderstorms have been observed off the coast of San Diego County, moving onshore. Snow levels are down to approximately 3000 feet above sea level this evening, according to the National Weather Service. Snow levels are expected to fluctuate between 2500 and 3000 feet overnight, and possibly even down to 2000 feet locally as cold temperatures settle.

Preliminary storm totals since midnight Thursday have been mostly between 1 and 2 inches across the WeatherCurrents network, with lower totals north of Los Angeles. WeatherCurrents' stations in Murrieta and Wildomar have so far seen the most benefit from the storm with totals near or exceeding 2 inches since midnight. Storm totals from WeatherCurrents' station in Anza are believed to be inaccurate and reporting too high since Thursday. The Temecula station is currently experiencing an outage due to unknown reasons, however the station's feed is expected to be restored by Sunday night.
