Rainstorm Dumps Nearly 3 Inches


The rainstorm that started March 29 around 11 p.m. and continued into Easter morning, March 31, left about 2.95 inches of rain in the gauge on Radcliffe.

This brings the season total to 32.55 inches of rain.

In 2022-23, the Palisades received 32.1 inches of rain. The most rain recorded here, according to the late Ted Mackie, who had records dating back to 1942, was in 42.60 inches in 1997-1998.

Pacific Palisades has already topped last year’s rainfall, and is a mere 10 inches away from breaking the record. Can we do it? The rainfall is measured from July 1 through June 30. The average for this area is 13.78 inches of rain.

A gentle reminder, people can probably turn off their sprinklers for a few weeks. My dogs and I managed to miss showers this morning and then were hit with irrigation.

We didn’t make it up to the waterfall in Temescal (because dogs are not allowed), the stream running through Temescal Gateway Park is lovely, though.

After the recent rains, irrigation sprinklers can most likely be turned off for a few weeks.
