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.
Thanks to SoCal showers and a rising Sun, motorists along I-10 near Whitewater were treated to this colorful sight this morning.
