Baldy has a little new snowfall showing on the trees there today from last night. At 12 noon, it's not very crowded though on the HSQ showing on the cam. But lots of base snow on the slopes!

Pretty impressive storm totals considering the trajectories and dry air mass when the storm hit. SD officially received 0.96" matching or exceeding most locations in OC. That also exceeds many mountain areas which is VERY unusual. But that's what happens when the storm is out of the south/southwest and the orographics don't come into play. The seasonal rain deficit is now just under 1/2".
It has to snow again eventually...right???

An inch of rain is pretty good for Downtown [SD].
I'm gonna take my 3/4" of slow soaking rain and hit the trails. Still >2.00" low.

Coldest it's been since the rain started, now. Cold breeze and fog herE in S OC.
I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to yoooouuu.

:D LOL

I think this joke plays out better in early-mid November tho ... when there may be warm dry Santa Anas blowin' in SoCal, but there's 1'-2' of early-season snow on the more northerly version of 'Baldy'...

It's not showing up on the radar but it's raining again down HeRE in SD. Just a light rain or heavy drizzle not quite sure the difference :rofl:

This came up for the Santa Ana rADAR
Image

hAD .04" during the night with torrential mist. Then around 6AM the heavens opened up with heavy downpour for few minutes... Couldn't find it on radar, finally found that cell. Maybe they are all sporadically being shut and maintained after being put to use after the storms...doubt it, but theories are always entertaining.

Looks like we'll have to go with the satellite on this one. VIS is showing a line of bubbly-looking clouds near the LA, Ventura border, with more popping up over the western San Gabriel foothills. That's probably what you're seeing, Cheaps. Skies are clear to my south, but much darker to the north and west.

It was partly sunny this morning and had been getting darker and darker thru the afternoon. What surprises me about the VIS is the flow doesnt look favorable since its parallel to the SGs. Nevertheless its just now winding down. Never got any T&L but there was small hail mixed in with the rain and its much colder.

Saw those clouds on the way back from Ventura into SFV with some heavy rain this afternoon. Bubbly looking was a very good description. Coast was clear and windy...

The temp. dropped like a rock! According to my local WeatherBug station (which is pretty accurate) its 45° right now.
