So far the atmospheric river has been more of a rivulet. About 2 inches of snow fell at Daggett Summit on Monday, and that fell in the morning. Down here, we got about a fifth of an inch of rain.

Today’s windstorm doesn’t seem like it will be much more productive. We’re supposed to receive a tenth of an inch of rain before 4 p.m. The high wind advisory is in effect from noon to 7 p.m. Expect winds out of the southwest at 20-30 mph, gusting to 45 mph. We could crack 50 degrees today.
