    Officially, it wasn't much of a storm.  The county's official reporting site, Lindbergh Field recieved only a third of an inch - about a third of what we were hoping for. 

    Other areas of the county got quite a bit more; a few a bit less. 

    The "good news - bad news" of the situation is that there is no more rain predicted until at least next weekend - that's the weekend of the 20th and that's too far off to be certain about anything.  That's the bad - the good - high pressure is moving in bringing us "sunshine and 70s" beginning Saturday.

    Meantime, "officially" for the month we've had 1.00"  at the airport and 6.78"  for the season, which runs from July 1 to June 30.  That is .69" above normal so we're doing alright but if we want to really "bust the drought" we need a lot more.

    As you look at the totals for this most recent storm keep in mind the figures don't include the 4"-6" of snow we got on top of Laguna and Palomar Mountains. Click here for rainfall totals
