Can't sleep tonight and I suddenly remembered today that I had started a Wunderblog here.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! I trust you all had a pretty good holiday! We had a little bit of rain here and there but nothing too extreme.
What we did see was super-low snow levels this past weekend. What a treat for Santa Clarita! Even Oat Mountain above my church was snow-capped for a brief time. Well all that has ended and tonight we're seeing a cut-off low pressure system meander through the region bringing some faux-showers and even a few real ones. It looks like after this we won't see much in the way of any interesting weather for a while and settle into a dry pattern.
But hey, we're way ahead on our yearly rainfall totals. Of course, I'd like to see more rain come through here but I know that the rain we saw in December and even the rains we saw early this year have been against the odds, given the La Nina that is peaking out in the pacific. We really have no business getting as much rainfall as we've got. But like I said, I'll take it.
My weather station is turning a year old this month! This past year it's performed beautifully and served as a great little weather monitoring station. I'm looking forward to many more years from the little guy. Happy Birthday, Studio City Weather Center!
