Measurable rain to fall on beautiful Catalina in February 2018!

At least 0.02 inches, as deduced from this keyboard–haha.  Should be more than that, but, in a rain of drought,  everything seems to work against getting a major rain.  Raindrops will  possibly begin as early as  12:02 AM on February 15th, though probably not.  Maybe a day or two later if a tropical insertion of moisture around a low passes east of Catalina.    In that case,  we’ll have to wait for the Pacific polar air to reach us near the center of that upper low as it drifts eastward.

What is certain is that clouds will once again present themselves in great quantities over our skies in just a few days.  The colorful sunsets and sunrises that visually spoil us with so much splendor will return, too, after being mostly absent over these past weeks of drought.
