More rain is on the way to the Palm Springs area | Here’s how much is predicted to fall

Only a few days after that Thanksgiving storm passed through Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley, another storm system is set to hit the desert this week. So how much rain will we get?

The storm will be moving into Southern California late Tuesday / early Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

As for precipitation, Palm Springs is forecasted to see somewhere between .25″ and .5″ of the wet stuff – which should be just enough to check if those Christmas lights you just put up outside your home are secure.

As you move east, there will be less rain, with Thermal seeing somewhere between .1″ and .25″ of rain.

The rest of Southern California should see more than that with over an inch predicted in many spots and snow hitting those mountains again – though not quite as low as the Thanksgiving storm, as snow levels are predicted to be around the 6,500 foot level.

Things will clear out by Thursday and the weekend is looking nice – with a few clouds and a high of about 70 degrees from Friday through Sunday, which should be nice for heading out on the hiking trails or the Light Parade or whatever it is you do with your weekends.
