In the morning on Mar 2, I had 1.0" accumulated in my back yard (1.5" at the San Pedro annex) from the day and night before. I'd been away in Monrovia (a more inland area up against the San Gabriel mountains) all day and the rain there was torrential at times, so I expected much more than the 1" that I measured back at home, but 1" is a good amount for this area.
Mar 02 1.0; season total 5.18"
This post sat in draft mode for a while, so it's a bit stale as I write this. However, there is the benefit that we now know that we could get a drizzle later this week. A short rain year it has been indeed.
