Atmospheric River

It has been poring all night. By 8:30 pm, my weather station read 1.99″, and by 9:30 pm, it read 2.37″ and it is still raining cats and dogs – as my weather station likes to Point out.

At the 6:30, I am up to 1.25″ – much more than expected!

And as of 3:30 pm, I have 3/4″ for today, the Solstice.

  1. Loving it. 6:30 this morning the temp at Bixby Bridge was 57 degrees. 56 degrees a mile south at Hurricane Point. Classic El Nino bringing in warmer air along with the moisture. Not sure how the predicted snow at low elevations later this week work into this but the Pineapple Express is now established.

  3. I saw your trick on your FB, Jim, and was impressed. I did NOT know about this solstice phenomena, so will have to try it! Yes, the uncertainty of life in Big Sur in a serious El Niño year may bring us all sorts of adventure. Be well, safe, warm, and loved this season.

  4. I’ll settle for those 2-3″ up here! Thanks for the weather reports! Stay warm and healthy! Oh, and happy, too! 😀
