DAYS OF NO RAIN AT EAST HESPERIA: 00

SYNOP:A strong Pacific storm currently located just off the coast of Point Conception will bring rain, heavy at times, this morning. The rain will turn to scattered showers this afternoon as the storm center pushes inland and then end tonight as the storm pushes off to the east. Most foothill and mountain locations will receive an additional 1 to 2 inches of rainfall and most coastal and valley locations will receive an additional half inch to an inch of rainfall with this storm. The snow level will drop to around 6,000 feet this afternoon. Southerly winds of 20 to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph will continue to surface across the wind prone areas this morning and then switch to the west this afternoon and tonight. Temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees below normal today, with upper 30s and 40s across the mountains and 50s to low 60s in the valleys. The back side of this storm will bring northerly winds of 20 to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph to much of Santa Barbara County and the Grapevine Wednesday. Temperatures will warm a few degrees Wednesday, but they will still be a little below normal. A strong ridge of high pressure will build into the West Coast bringing a big warming and drying trend to the region Thursday through this weekend. Temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal and minimum humidity will be mainly in the teens and twenties Friday through this weekend. Winds will be light Thursday through this weekend. The ridge of high pressure will weaken bringing a cooling trend and an increase in humidity to the region early next week. 

NWS LAS VEGAS – (NORTH & EAST OF BARSTOW)A Pacific storm system will move through the region today and this evening bringing widespread rain and high elevation snow to the area. A few showers may linger Wednesday across eastern Lincoln and northern Mohave Counties then dry and mild conditions are expected Thursday through the weekend as high pressure moves  over the area. Fire Potential Discussion: There will be little or no fire activity across the region through the forecast period. Widespread significant rainfall has greatly increased the dead fuel moisture and soil moisture and it will take some time for them to dry out enough to allow for an increase in fire activity.

——————————————–

ON THIS DAY:

2009: Santa Ana winds gusted up to 83 mph at Fremont Canyon. Winds downed trees and power lines, overturned semi-trucks, and damaged roofs.

2005: Five consecutive days of heavy rainfall started on 1/7 and ended on 1/11. The wet weather was blamed on an atmospheric phenomenon known as the “Pineapple Connection” or “Atmospheric River”. 31.75 inches fell in Lake Arrowhead, 29.70 inches at Lytle Creek, 19.86 inches in Devore, and 15.09 inches at Palomar Mountain. Four to ten inches fell at lower elevations. Flash flooding and mudslides caused millions of dollars of damage to homes, businesses, vehicles, parks, crops, roads and bridges. A state of emergency was declared in Riverside, Orange, San Bernardino, and San Diego Counties. Widespread catastrophic floods impacted nearly every community. This followed heavy storms in late December and earlier in January.

2001: A very high tide and a four foot surf flooded Surfside in Seal Beach.

1998: Heavy rain that started on 1/8 and ended on 1/10 brought two inches of rainfall, causing floods and mud slides in Del Dios (near Escondido). A tornado hit Long Beach causing property damage. A waterspout was observed three miles off Laguna Beach.

1993: A very wet series of storms that began on 1/6 and ended on 1/19 produced 20 to 50 inches of precipitation in the mountains and up to 12 inches at lower elevations over a two week period. It was one of the longest periods of consecutive days of rain on record (14) and measurable rain fell nearly every day from 1/2 to 1/19. Flooding and flash flooding, mud slides, etc., resulted.

1949: The most significant snowstorm to hit lower elevations started on this day and ended on 1/11. 14 inches fell in Woodland Hills, eight inches in La Cañada and Catalina Island (at 2,100 feet), six inches in Altadena, five inches in Burbank, four inches in Pasadena, one inch in Laguna Beach and Long Beach. A trace fell in San Diego, the only time since 1882. Three feet piled up at Mt. Laguna, 18 inches fell on Cuyamaca, and one foot in Julian. Four to eight inches fell as low as 1000 feet in elevation. A light covering was reported in La Jolla, Point Loma, Miramar, Escondido, Spring Valley, and other outlying San Diego areas. The snow snarled all kinds of transportation and caused power outages and emergencies. A plane crash killed five and injured one near Julian. A camping group was stranded at Cuyamaca.

1948: It was 82° in Idyllwild, the highest temperature on record for January.

1888: Freezing temperatures in inland valleys killed the citrus crop.

TROPICAL UPDATES:

The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15th through November 30th.
