Rainfall records for SB going back to 1899 can be found here. http://countyofsb.org/pwd/water/downloads/hydro/234mdd.pdf this is a table of the monthly totals. The highest precipitation totals were all in the 1990s. Most in a year: 46.97” in 1997-1998. Highest total in January: 21.94” in 1994-1995. Highest total in Feb: 21.36” in 1997-1998. You just need to scroll down the Jan & Feb columns to seen the extreme precip events. Jan in 1968-1969 had 15.55” which is on of the higher totals which might have caused flooding if it fell in a short period of time. This is on of the many resources that can be found at Rain.cosbpw.net if you follow the links to the historical records

Well that was an impressive squall that worked it's way through SB starting around 8:00am. Very prominent line on all the radar sites. Weather Underground seemed to have the least real-time delay. 2" in my gauge.

It’s definitely shaping up to be a wild one. I wish I didn’t have to be in Ventura tomorrow by 8:00am for our exchange student’s college entrance exam. I envision getting down there, but afterwards 101 closing and I-5 closing at the grapevine due to snow hindering our return trip.

High winds, lots of rain = power out. If power out, gas stations can't pump gas, and grocery stores can't check your groceries. Get gas and food now, just in case.

Read the first two sentences of the warning. The Evac Order is a done deal later today. The only scenario preventing it from being issued is a miraculous/ last minute change the storm trajectory. If you are in a vulnerable location, this is your time to prepare yourself, family, and pets. Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.

@Scoops, that link should cause two things to show on your screen - a map at the top and a graphical box that shows an hour-by-hour and day-by-day timeline across the lower half of the screen. That box at the bottom will have a big maroon X at it's upper-left corner - don't click that or the box will disappear. The map at the top has icons at the far right - click them to show different things (Radar, Wind, Rain, etc.). Things like wind and waves are animated in the map so you can visualize directions. To move the map around, click your left mouse and hold it down while dragging across the screen - or just type a new city into the white search box at upper-left of the map. For the big graphical box at the bottom, there's a horizontal strip of buttons you can click to control what shows in the box. That link should have caused "Meteogram" and "ECMWF" to be selected (has a maroon color). ECMWF is the name of the weather forecast model that's generating all the forecast information in the graphical box. You can choose any of the others like "NAM" by clicking their buttons. For any given day in the timeline, there is a vertical column of data (temp, wind, gusts, pressure, air convection, etc.). The legend for that data is displayed at the far left of the graphical box. Some of that data appears as text (e.g. a number) while other data appears as a visualization (e.g. a colored bar). That's the basics, experiment and have fun!

This is neat ... Windy.com users can enable a "meteogram" at the bottom of the screen to visualize forecast info from any of the weather models you select (e.g. ECMWF). I don't know how to enable the meteogram from the GUI but you can insert it into your link, like this ........ https://www.windy.com/34.420/-119.700/meteogram?radar,33.704,-119.702,8,m:eCxacPF

10:47 and all - Yes, it was pretty incredible. I've lived here over 50 years; I know how rare lightning is here. I didn't go to bed til around 2 a.m. What time did it start? ================================= Yes, I slept late. What I told out of town friends: "Hella storm! It was after 2 am.; I never turned on light or looked at clock. Thunderstorm! They're rare here. I was in bathroom, which faces S., saw a flash. It seemed far away, over the ocean. Well, it came for us. No HUGE booms that made me jump out of my skin, but thunder shook the window frames, the walls. Each clap was symphonic; different rumbles and tones and loudness, bouncing off the mountains and back -- you could hear it swaying like liquid in a bowl as the sound traveled back and forth. It was amazing. And yes, some short intense downpours.

The thunder & lightning appeared to start @5:00a on the Riviera. Initially the cells were too far away to hear any thunder but by 6:00a the thunder was the loudest I've heard here in many years with 1 to 2 seconds between the flash and sound (so definitely less than a mile away).
