Residents in the Inland Empire experienced cool downpours on Thursday Oct. 11, quite the contrast from the muggy summer rain that hung around the region a couple of months ago.
Weather Currents meteorologist, Jim Purpura said the strong and cool low pressure system that brought rain will be moving out Friday morning.
“There is a chance of showers Friday morning,” Purpura explained.
Purpura added the rainfall was mostly as expected across the Inland Empire, with most areas receiving up to half an inch on Thursday afternoon.
“Murietta received two heavy showers, one in the early morning, one in the early afternoon topping the Inland Empire rainfall list with 0.83 inches of rain,” Purpura said.
The temperatures are expected to warm up again as a ridge of high pressure heads into the region over the weekend.
Purpura advised temperatures by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week will be in the low to mid 90’s.
