This was taken last night in San Simeon. One can see the Piedras Blancas lighthouse in the distance, with its light shining. Saying good buy to February. March is coming in like a lion, with wave after wave of rain, this first week.
Season total to-date: 27.5 inches.
The end of February totals for the last 5 years (still haven’t found my calendars for the previous 10 years, but they are here, I know.)
2008 – 45.0 inches
2007 – 17.5 inches
2006 – 30.1 inches
2005 – 59. 75 inches
So, we are still quite a bit below average, at least based on the last 5 years.
7:30 am – last day of February, and rain predicted to begin by tomorrow morning in our neck of the woods, and last for much of the week ahead. Could be a busy week for all of us. This morning’s NOAA forecast had this to say:
OVERALL THE WEEK WILL BE QUITE WET. FLOODING CONCERNS WILL ALSO
BECOME ELEVATED AS EACH ROUND OF RAIN WILL FALL ON GROUND THAT
IS ALREADY WET. FINALLY...SNOW LEVELS WILL DROP WITH EACH PASSING
WAVE. IF THE MODELS VERIFY LEVELS WILL BE AROUND 2500 FEET IN
THE WORST CASE SCENARIO BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND REMAIN UNDER
4000 FEET FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK.
