Storm Totals: March 1st-2nd, 2020

A cold storm dropped in over Southern California late Sunday, bringing scattered showers and generally small rain amounts to the region Sunday night and early Monday morning.

Storm totals were mostly under 1/4 inch. Significantly higher totals were observed along south-facing slopes of the San Bernardino Mountains, benefiting greatly from orographic lift. Totals reported in this region included 0.75 inches in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas) as well as 0.51 inches in Yucaipa (courtesy of Don Kramer). Elsewhere, rainfall was less notable. WeatherCurrents' station in Moreno Valley, located on the southern slope of Box Springs Mountain, recorded the highest total in the WeatherCurrents network with 0.23 inches. Beaumont (Cherry Valley) and Anza followed with totals of 0.15 inches and 0.12 inches, respectively. Between 0.01 and 0.09 inches was recorded at all other locations in the network, except for South Temecula, which was the only station to not record any measurable rainfall from the storm. East of Temecula, 0.03 inches was also reported in Temecula Valley's Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington).

Strong offshore flow quickly replaced the storm by Monday morning. Mild weather was forecast to take place during the week, before another Pacific trough brings additional chances of precipitation next weekend.
