Monday's stats:

Low temp: 33.8F (1.0C)
High temp: 42.3F (5.7C)
Precipitation (melted): 0.76" (1.9cm)
Storm total precip (melted): 0.89" (2.3cm)
Snowfall: 0.6" (1.5cm)

This latest rain and snow event of the past 24 hours has now pushed us well above normal for precipitation for the month of January -- with 15 days to go.  This has been very good news, with a very healthy snowpack now established in the mountains above.  It's been quite a turn of events following our nearly bone dry weather of the fall and early winter seasons.

The pattern is looking changeable and potentially active all the way through the end of the month, with a few more chances of measurable rain and snowfall.  Temperatures should moderate a bit by Thursday and Friday -- and we could have the mildest weather since the first couple of days of the new year by this weekend.  Check THE 7-DAY OUTLOOK (above) for forecast details.
