It’s back, and wetter than ever!

Rain returned to Claremont Thursday as a powerful atmospheric river made its way over the region.

And though at press time the forecast called for a cool, cloudy, but dry Friday and Saturday, the rain is predicted to return Sunday, followed by more of the wet stuff through Wednesday.

This season’s rainfall total for Los Angeles County was at 9.42 inches at press time, which is approaching the normal year-to-date total through February of 10.92 inches. Of course, these totals are dwarfed by last year’s epic winter, during which LA County saw more than 20 inches of rainfall by the end of February.

When all was said and done, the National Weather Service reported Claremont received an astonishing 42.24 inches of rain over last year’s season.
