Hi Guys, As anticipated, the weather story for California in December was RAIN.
Record rainfall was reported across California throughout the month. The 7th, the 21st, 25th, and 26th were the wettest days for the state, with record breaking rainfall totals reported in Crescent City, Bakersfield, Hanford, Redding, Red Bluff, and Long Beach. The location with the most precipitation was reported at Redding Airport with a total of 2.72 inches of rain on December 7th.
My AcuRite Atlas™ weather station saw the heaviest rainfall on Dec 4th and 22nd, with rainfall totals reaching 0.44 inches and 0.39 inches, respectively. The total reported by my weather station for the month was 2.42 inches. This is a very wet December for us, last year we saw less than 2 inches of rainfall in December.
Wind was a minor issue this month, with a storm on the 7th bringing in strong winds that reached up to 21 mph.
Temperatures continue to gradually drop so we’ll have an update on that in January’s Monthly Weather Recap. As always, we encourage you to share and discuss your monthly weather recap in the comments below. Until Next Time!
*Insider Tip* Do you want to be able to access more than the past 30 days data? Then simply download your data every month to archive and graph yourself! I have a calendar alert set for the last day of every month so I remember to do this. From your My AcuRite app or website, simply go to charts, then click on the download icon in the upper right-hand corner. You’ll be prompted to select a date range and to enter or verify the email address you would like the file sent to.
