Yesterday's storm gave us our first rainfall of any significance here on the Santa Barbara south coast. We got about 1.5- 2" overnight. That brings our seasonal rainfall total up to 2.5" which is about 15% of normal.
Parts of the SB/Ventura backcountry faired a little better, with some of the remote weather stations checking in with 2.5- 3" or more. The deep backcountry (Cuyama area, Mt Pinos, etc.) must've been in the rain shadow as these areas were mostly back down in the 0.5" range.
Data for all of the rain gauges can be found HERE. Click on a station to get the station name and various rainfall summary statistics (e.g., 12- hour, 24- hour, month, season, etc.).
The next round is supposed to move in tonight for us and linger through Saturday. Expecting a few inches along the coast with this next system, possibly up to 8" in the southern Los Padres backcountry. Hopefully that's enough to start to bring our local creeks back to life.
