What a day!

Posted by deanna on August 24, 2011, 8:26 am

Yesterday was a little on the horrible side - 1.88 inches of
rain and a massive power outage that went on until 11:30
PM. Lots of wind and low, gray skies all day. I can see a little blue sky this morning but the monsoon trough is now
directly on top of us, which probably means more rain today. This graphic shows the dreaded trough:

The low pressure system that produced yesterday's weather has moved to the north:

It appears that the river opened up at some point yesterday but now all I see is a very muddy arroyo with no water, from the bridge to the ocean. Paved streets are also filled with mud and unpaved streets are mostly deep gullies that you drive with great peril.

Rain overnight was .36/inch - August total is up to 6.57 inches.

More later.....
