Christmas week rain | Here’s how much is predicted for the Coachella Valley

While it definitely won’t be a White Christmas in the Coachella Valley…I mean, it’s a desert, dude…it’s looking like the Holiday Week is going to be a wet one. Here’s how much rain is expected in the Greater Palm Springs Area next week.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a chance of showers around Southern California from Sunday through Thursday – with the best chance at precipitation coming on Monday and Thursday, the day after Christmas.

While some parts of Southern California California are likely to see an inch to 1.5″ of rain during the week, Palm Springs will see a bit less, with anywhere from 0.25″ to 0.5″ of rain expected.

As you move east, the totals go down, with Thermal forecasted to get somewhere between 0.1″ to 0.25 inches of rain during the week.

The National Weather Service is calling for a snow level of 6,000 feet, so there could be even more of the white stuff to get your skiing, sledding, snowboarding, or whatever it is you do in the snow on.

And while it’s always great to get much needed rain in Southern California, the roads were already expected to be a mess with a record number of travelers headed out for the holidays.

Be careful out there and drive safe!
