The Victor Valley saw a total of 1.44 inches of rainfall from the storm that blew in Wednesday night and continued for most of the day Thursday, according to National Weather Service Meterologist Tina Stall.
Daily Press weather spotters recorded 0.79 inches of rainfall in Victorville, 0.38 inches in Adelanto, 1.31 inches in Apple Valley, 0.13 inches in Barstow, 1.74 inches in Hesperia, 1.49 inches in Phelan, 1.45 inches in Pinon Hills, 0.46 inches in Lucerne Valley and 1.40 inches in Silver Lakes.
The steady precipitation which flooded some areas and forced road closures Thursday eventually let up in the afternoon, but Stall said the weather will “pick itself back up again” as more rain is expected to to fall beginning Friday evening.
“The bulk of rain will fall overnight on Friday into early Saturday morning, and it looks like most of the precipitation for light snow will have fallen by then. But most likely it's going to be rain,” Stall said.
Stall also told the Daily Press that snow could fall in the Cajon Pass — levels are expected to drop to as low as 3,500 feet starting Friday night and into Saturday. High winds are also expected, including gusts that could reach up to 50 mph and commuters are advised to take precautions traveling this weekend.
Friday: A 30-percent chance of rain after 4 p.m. and partly sunny skies with a high near 56 degrees. Windy and a 90 percent chance of precipitation after 10 p.m., with a low of 37 degrees.
Saturday: A 70-percent chance of precipitation in the morning, with rain expected to fall before 10 a.m. and a high of 45 degrees. Little or no snow accumulation is expected during the day. Slight chance of rain and snow showers before 10 p.m., with partly cloudy skies and a low around 27 degrees.
According to Stall, the rain will be “finishing up” Saturday night as Sunday is looking to produce dryer weather.
