A storm that was supposed to dump rain on the Southland over the next few days has weakened considerably, Weather Currents forecaster Jim Purpura reported today.
Little, if any rain will fall. Trace amounts or possible drizzle will likely dampen the region.
“Best chances of rain will be Wednesday night and Thursday morning, only a 15 percent chance,” Purpura explained.
He also noted that each week later into spring brings a lower chance of wet weather, although in late May 2008, a cold storm doused the Inland Empire with 1.20 inches of rain.
As a result of experiencing a drier winter than normal, Purpura warns the conditions may lead to a “greater than normal possibility of large wildfires in the fall.”
