Last night's storm brought damaging winds, rain and even hail and has left poor air quality in it's wake AQI started out in the "Unhealthy" range this morning, prompting a blowing dust advisory from the SCAQMD, but that expired at 10 a.m. and AQI readings are now in the "Moderate" range throughout the Valley.
Wind gusts were dramatic, over 60mph in areas around the Valley.
And while light rainfall fell briefly in the Valley, high desert locations picked up significant rain as well as some hail in Yucca Valley and the rumble of thunder.
The storm system remains a significant weather-maker off to our East through the Intermountain West and the Rockies.
Today will be much cooler than normal (93) by nearly 20 degrees!
The next few days bring warmer conditions, but still below the seasonal norm for the date.
