Here’s how much rain the Coachella Valley got Thursday

A storm blew into Southern California on Thursday and while some parts of the region saw a bunch of rain, the Coachella Valley saw much less – desert gotta be a desert, I suppose.

As of 10 pm Thursday, these were the totals, according to the National Weather Service:

  • Palm Springs: .07 inches
  • Desert Hot Springs: .12 inches
  • Whitewater: 1.19 inches

Not a ton, but enough for some nice rainbows.

Totals for other Coachella Valley areas / cities were not available.

Meanwhile, there’s snow in them thar hills.

Big Bear Mountain Resort reports 4 – 8″ of new snow in Big Bear Lake.  No word yet on how much was received at the top of the Palm Springs Tram.
