Storm Totals: February 22nd-23rd, 2020

By Reginald Stanley. Posted February 24, 2020, 1:33 AM.

A cutoff low produced scattered showers, which were heavy in some locations, across Southern California on Saturday.

Rainfall occurred in a series of bursts between Saturday morning and later that evening. This also caused significant temperature fluctuations within a matter of minutes at many locations. WeatherCurrents' station in Fallbrook recorded its daily high temperature of 58.2°F at 1:01 PM Saturday, only to quickly record its daily low temperature only 37 minutes later (a temperature of 51.3°F), due to the incursion of a sudden hail storm there. Precipitation totals varied between no measurable rain at all in Pinon Hills, to 0.90 inches in both Fallbrook and Temecula Valley Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington) respectively. In Yucaipa, an even higher total of 1.08 inches was reported (courtesy of Don Kramer). Moreno Valley, Simi Valley, Temecula, Beaumont (Cherry Valley) and East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas) also all recorded amounts exceeding 1/2 inch Saturday. The Temecula Valley from Murrieta and northwards, as well as much of the interior and eastern Inland Empire, generally received more consistent totals between 0.13 and 0.34 inches. Riverside was much drier, where WeatherCurrents stations in Orangecrest and Presidential Park recorded totals of only 0.07 and 0.01 inches, respectively.

At most locations, the heaviest rain fell during early Saturday afternoon, although shower activity did not completely leave the region until early Sunday morning. Partly cloudy skies remained throughout Sunday. Offshore flow is forecast to develop this week under an upper level high pressure ridge, allowing for above-average temperatures to dominate throughout the week. No rain is in the forecast, however computer forecast models have demonstrated chances of possible storm activity in the region in early March.
