Temperatures climb into triple-digits again inland ()
A high pressure ridge has ramped up temperatures inland this week, beginning a steady climb on Tuesday and breaking int triple-digits across parts of the Inland Empire on Wednesday. As temperatures peaked Wednesday afternoon, Lake Elsinore was the hottest location in the WeatherCurrents network, with a high temperature of 106 degrees. Both Wildomar and San Jacinto followed closely behind with high temperatures of 105 degrees. Foothill and mountain communities, as well as locations closer to the coast, were spared from triple-digits temperatures Wednesday. WeatherCurrents' station in Fallbrook was the mildest in the WeatherCurrents network on Wednesday, with a high temperature of only 89 degrees. Temperatures are forecast to remain about the same Thursday as they were on Wednesday inland, if not slightly warmer. Marine layer presence remains strong along the coasts despite the heat inland. The high pressure ridge is expected to begin breaking down Friday through the weekend, lead ...

Monsoonal moisture breaks out amid heat wave ()
High pressure situated over the Four Corners region is contributing to both high temperatures and monsoonal flow to Southern California this week. Cloudy skies and relatively high humidity kept overnight temperatures rather high into Tuesday morning. Shortly after midnight Tuesday, isolated showers popped up over parts of the Inland Empire, and this activity increased and became more widespread shortly after sunrise. Heavier showers and extensive lightning were reported in the Santa Ana Mountains Tuesday morning. Following a lull in thunderstorm activity west of the mountains mid-day Tuesday, additional thunderstorms formed over parts of the Inland Empire later Tuesday afternoon, hitting WeatherCurrents' station in Perris hardest (where 0.24 inches fell). Even WeatherCurrents' station in the somewhat remote mountain community of Pinon Hills, in the northern San Gabriel Mountains, reported 0.07 inches from a thunderstorm Tuesday afternoon. WeatherCurrents' stations in Beaumont (Ch ...

Heat wave to take place through next week ()
Interrupting what has so far been a rather mild summer, a strong high pressure ridge over the Four Corners region is turning up the heat for Southern California late this week well into the middle of the following week. High temperatures in the triple-digits are expected to be widespread inland from Friday through at least Monday, before the ridge breaks down around the middle of the week. The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for western Riverside County and southwestern San Bernardino County from 10 AM Friday through 8 PM Monday, during which days high temperatures are expected to peak. The heat will be even more pronounced in the low desert, where the National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for the same time period. The affected low desert region includes the cities of Palm Springs, Indio, Borrego Springs, and El Centro. Monsoonal moisture is also expected to enter the region Friday and Saturday, however it will be confined mostly to th ...

2018-2019 Rain Season Review and Totals ()
A weak El Nino pattern in the equatorial Pacific was present throughout the winter of 2018-19, the first such El Nino since 2015-16. However, unlike 2015-16, the region benefited greatly from an above-average rainy season during the 2018-19 water year. This stands in stark contrast to the abysmal 2017-18 water year, which was well below-average for the entire region and induced drought conditions. The last above-average water year in Southern California occurred in 2016-17. Following a warm but generally inactive summer in 2018, the region received a healthy amount of storms during the Fall months. A surge of abundant, heavy storm activity began at the end of January, continuing throughout the entire month of February 2019 - setting numerous precipitation records for month all across the region, with particular emphasis on February 14th. February was also one of the coldest months on record in the WeatherCurrents network, where Temecula broke its previous coldest month's record o ...

Drizzle results in spotty precipitation reports Friday morning ()
A particularly deep marine layer and an unseasonable low pressure trough were both responsible for scattered reports of small, but measurable precipitation on the first day of summer across the region. Amid a deepening marine layer late Thursday night, drizzle started to fall in some inland communities around midnight, continuing into Friday morning. In the WeatherCurrents network, three stations recorded measurable precipitation. Beaumont (Cherry Valley) and De Luz both recorded 0.03 inches, and French Valley received 0.02 inches. Not far from Beaumont, a total of 0.02 inches was also reported in East Highland (courtesy of Peter Michas). East of the Temecula Valley, a total of 0.01 inch was reported in Temecula Valley's Wine Country (courtesy of Jim Sappington). No further precipitation was expected in the following days.
