More snow, rain for IWV

More snow, rain for IWVSnow falls on the Sierra Nevada during an unseasonably rainy week in the IWV. According to the China Lake Weather Office, about an inch and a half of rain fell during the last week. “That’s a little above average for the month of January,” said Forecaster Tamera Walters, who noted that the monthly average is a little less than an inch. The 1.45 inches recorded by late Thursday morning was about a third of our annual average of 4.62 inches. “We typically get the majority of our rain in the winter, so it’s not too uncommon to see an event like this.” This will be the last of the rain for a while, she said. — Photo by Laura Austin
