It certainly has been a while since I have provided one of these, and I admit my records are in a bit of a mess right now, regarding season totals, etc. But will make it a priority today, and post those later.
For the moment, let me say that when I woke at 5 am this morning, it was raining gently, and it wasn’t the rain that woke me.
For now, NOAA had this to say: “AS OF 9:00 AM PDT WEDNESDAY…RAIN IS TAPERING OFF AT THIS HOUR BEHIND A FRONT WHICH MOVED THROUGH OUR CWA EARLY THIS MORNING. 24 HOUR RAINFALL TOTALS ARE CLOSE TO THE CNRFC FORECAST WITH THE HIGHEST VALUE AT VENADO (2.26″). GENERAL RAINFALL TOTALS HAVE BEEN 1-2″ OVER THE NORTH BAY MOUNTAINS…1/2-1″ FOR NORTH BAY VALLEYS AND SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS…1/4-1/2″ AROUND SF BAY…AND LESS THAN 1/4″ FOR MOST POINTS TO THE SOUTH.”
And for what is coming, this is the forecast for Friday: “RAINFALL COULD BE LOCALLY HEAVY AT TIME. LIFTED VALUES WILL ALSO DROP DOWN TO MINUS 2 AND WITH MOSGUIDE THUNDERSTORM POPS ABOVE 30 PERCENT FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON…THUNDER WILL BE A DEFINITE POSSIBILITY. WILL UPDATE THE GRIDS TO ADD THE MENTION OF BRIEF HEAVY RAIN AND THUNDER PLUS SMALL HAIL. SNOW LEVELS WILL DROP BEHIND THE FRONT PRODUCING A RAIN/SNOW MIX AS LOW AS 2000 FEET (WITH LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS POSSIBLE DOWN TO 2500 FEET).”
I’ll bring everyone up-to-date with the rain totals for today and the season later, keeping in mind that I had to estimate on similar values for the 10 days I was in Redondo Beach during the first heavy snow storm of the season.
Until later today (when, beside updating the weather report I might create a new post with more photos from my “out and about” days), blessings to all.
