Our wild, wet winter is set to continue with yet another storm set to move through the Coachella Valley beginning Wednesday.
The storm arrives less than a week after the insane Valentine’s Day flooding (and no, KESQ, no one is calling it the “Desert Deluge”). Forecasters are calling for the rain to begin Wednesday afternoon.

The low pressure system moving through is also brining some cold temperatures – which could see the snow level drip to as low as 2,000 – 3,000 feet, meaning another chance of snow in the High Desert and even a chance of seeing a dusting of the white stuff in parts of Banning and Beaumont.
Rain totals for Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley are expected to be less than the Valentine’s Day craziness – with .10 to .25 inches forecasted. There could also be wind gusts in parts of the desert up to 60 miles per hour.
As the Coachella Valley is still clearing out and making repairs to the damage caused by last week’s weather, any rain could cause more unexpected problems – so be smart while driving (turn around, don’t drown) and stay safe and dry out there.
