Disturbance brings rare June showers to some areas this weekend ()
A low pressure system has brought cooler, slightly damp weather to the region late this week, even resulting in measurable precipitation in some locations - a very rare occurrence during what is typically one of the driest months of the year on average. A deep marine layer, with multiple levels of stratus, brought scattered patches of light precipitation to parts of the region - still ongoing as of early Saturday morning. As of this writing, WeatherCurrents' station in Beaumont (Cherry Valley) has recorded the greatest amount of precipitation since Friday, totaling 0.20 inches. This is followed by 0.12 inches in De Luz. Northwest of Beaumont, a total of 0.05 inches was reported in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas). South of De Luz, Fallbrook recorded 0.08 inches through early Saturday morning. Other totals included 0.05 inches in Riverside's Orangecrest suburb, 0.10 inches in Temecula Valley's Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington), 0.03 inches in Moreno Valley, 0.02 in ...

May 2020 ends as it began: Warm, dry ()
Continuing a significant warming trend that began in late April in the region, May 2020 was one of the warmest in at least 20 years in the Inland Empire. In Temecula, where records date back to 1999, May 2020 was the second-warmest May on record, behind May 2014. Other WeatherCurrents stations recorded abnormally warm Mays this year as well, including both Murrieta and Hemet (where records date back to 2003). A number of WeatherCurrents stations also recorded little or no measurable precipitation during the month, with the exceptions of Simi Valley, Beaumont (Cherry Valley), De Luz, Fallbrook, Anza, San Jacinto, and French Valley. High pressure, unusually strong at times, persisted through much of the month throughout the region. A trough of low pressure along the West Coast may bring a slight chance of showers on Friday. June is on average one of the driest months of the year in the region, and any measurable precipitation in the month is very rare. In contrast to the heat the ...

Wettest April on record across the region ()
A six-day stormy period between April 6 and April 11 brought copious amounts of rainfall to the region, adding to an already wet Spring and setting rainfall records for the month of April region-wide. In Temecula, where precipitation records date back to 2000, April 2020 was the wettest such month on record - with 6.22 inches recorded there. That record was previously held by April 2006, when 2.28 inches had been recorded in Temecula. Temecula's monthly total of 6.22 inches was over 600 percent of normal for April. Similarly, WeatherCurrents' station in Murrieta recorded 4.71 inches in April. Records for Murrieta date back to 2003. A monthly total of 5.51 inches was recorded in Hemet, the wettest on record for that station. Likewise, all active WeatherCurrents stations recorded their wettest Aprils on record, a record unlikely to fall in any given year. A single, persistent cutoff low pressure system was largely responsible for the rainfall early in the month. The weather patter ...

April heat wave brings a taste of summer to region ()
High pressure, an unusually hot air mass, and offshore flow were responsible for the heat wave across the region this week, sending temperatures well into the 90s inland. WeatherCurrents' station in Lake Elsinore reached triple digit temperatures on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Across most of the region, the heat peaked on Friday, with widespread high temperatures in the upper 90s being prevalent inland. Wildomar and De Luz both recorded high temperatures just under the triple digit mark, at 99 degrees. The heat was less intense at higher elevations, where WeatherCurrents' stations in Anza, Beaumont (Cherry Valley) and Pinon Hills all had high temperatures below 90 degrees. Warm overnight temperatures, roughly 10 degrees above average for this time of year, have been present across the region since Thursday. The summer-like heat and dry weather stands in stark contrast to the cold, very wet weather the region experienced in March and early April. Weak onshore flow helped to br ...

Weak low pressure system brings isolated showers Friday and Saturday ()
A weak low pressure system brought cool weather, cloudiness and sporadic showers to parts of the region Friday and Saturday. Rainfall was not widespread, with only seven WeatherCurrents stations recording measurable rainfall through the end of Saturday. Where rain did fall, storm totals were not significant, ranging from just 0.01 inch at both Anza and Riverside (Orangecrest) to 0.14 inches in Orange (courtesy of Dan), where a brief downpour was reported Saturday morning. A total of 0.10 inches was reported in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas), matching that of WeatherCurrents' station in nearby Beaumont (Cherry Valley). In nearby Yucaipa, 0.05 inches was also reported (courtesy of Don Kramer). In Temecula Valley's Wine Country, 0.03 inches was reported (courtesy of Jim Sappington), matching the total recorded at WeatherCurrents' station in southern Temecula. Storm totals at other WeatherCurrents stations included 0.08 inches in Perris, 0.04 inches in Fallbrook, and 0.02 i ...
