Warm-up predicted to follow April showers
INLAND EMPIRE – Monday’s cold front brought the Inland region its first rain in a month, and it may be the last for a while.
Southern California’s rainy season usually ends by April 1st. Riverside forecaster Rob Krohn is ready to bring down the curtain on the wettest season in 5-years…
“There are signs in the atmosphere that we’re trending away from the rainy season. There is less and less moisture available to these weather systems as they move through and the Pacific is becoming less active.”
Monday’s winter-like storm was accompanied by a light blanket of mountain snow and some powerful desert winds.
Rainfall across the Metro area was generally less than one-quarter-of-an-inch. Devore measured 1.43" and Panorama Point below Crestline 2.01".
Any more April showers are not likely to make-up for the 2-inch rainfall deficit in March. Another weather front predicted for this weekend will likely be dry. (INT)
