Holly Moly, 

What a storm last night. That was spectacular!!! 

The 20% chance was not much during the day.

It all changed around 4:30 pm, when it was clear that thunderstorms to the south were heading our way.

The show started right around 6:30 and went well into 9 pm. Of course Jack had to climb onto his roof and take some pictures.

I lasted around 45 minutes, then decided after the big one that looked like a boom going off, “I better get off the roof.” 

As far as rain goes, we did see some, but 1/10 to ¼ inch was the totals. Not a big rain event, just lots of lightning and thunder. 

It was better than a real fireworks show!

 Here are rain totals:

I do have to give a big shout out to Marco, who worked overtime last night putting this video with sound together. “Great Job”

Today it all calms down as the system has moved East. LA might still see some rain, but it is over here.

Today will be nice with a weak pop-up ridge and mid-70s. Tonight, fog returns and a cool down begins as low pressure moves south.

Thursday will be a cloudy day with drizzle in the morning. The system to the north looks pretty impressive: https://zoom.earth/

This still looks to be weaker as it reaches us, but now it does look like we might see 1/10 to ¼ of an inch Friday afternoon.

Still a weaker system for us, but nice rain to the North. Hopefully putting out those fires.

The weekend offshore builds in, and we will see a nice warm up.

Looking way into next week, a weak low will come south and likely keep any rain north of our areas.

Have a good day, it will be interesting to see how my phone lights up today.
