Saturday’s crazy weather in Palm Springs broke a record

(Ryan Montgomery)

We knew we might see some precipitation in Palm Springs on Saturday, but no one expected that much!

The National Weather Service says Saturday’s set a record.

The city saw 1.19 inches of rain, most of which fell in a short period of time leading to flooding and trees toppling over.

Here are some of the other rain totals in and around the Coachella Valley:

  • Idyllwild: 0.64 inches
  • Mount San Jacinto: 0.53
  • Cathedral Canyon: 0.40
  • Indio: 0.12
  • Coachella: 0.06

And there’s a small chance of getting some more – as Sunday’s forecast has a 20% chance of rain, with things clearing out by Monday.
