It's Raining in California, Desert Southwest During a Typically Dry Time of Year. Here's Why.

Winter will be cooler than normal. Rainfall will be below normal in the north and above normal in the south, with below-normal mountain snows. The coolest temperatures will occur in mid- and late December, mid- to late January, early to mid-February, and early and late March. The stormiest periods will be in late November, mid- to late December, and early February; from late February into early March; and in mid- and late March. April and May will be cooler than normal, on average, with rainfall below normal in the north and above normal in the south. Summer will be cooler than normal, with rainfall slightly above normal.
As projected in seasonal forecasts and mid-range modeling outlooks , the past 30 days have been substantially warmer than average across the vast majority of California—featuring several significant heatwaves, especially in north coastal areas. A similar pattern is currently manifesting itself across the state, with very hot conditions in the northern third and essentially average conditions along the south coast. While California typically exists at the far western periphery of the typical monsoon zone, even the relatively brief and modest monsoonal incursions that typically occur in the state have been conspicuously absent thus far this summer. Tropical Storm Ivo lived out its relatively uneventful life west of Baja California over the past week, and has now dissipated into a remnant low visible as a spin of stratus and weak cumulus clouds on satellite imagery. However, the legacy of Ivo may yet affect portions of California over the next couple of days. A slug of deeper moisture and instability associated with the former tropical storm is currently moving northward off the CA coast, and is expected to make landfall from about the SF Bay Area northward from late Tuesday into Wednesday. This moisture will possibly be associated with a weak circulation in the mid-troposphere—nothing remarkable in and of itself, but a feature that could add just enough vertical lift to spark some high-based thunderstorms.
Southern California was hit by the wettest winter in years. And in mid-May — two months after the official end of winter — the rain and snow just keep coming. California was clobbered this week by another storm, which dumped snow on the Sierra and set rain records in the Southland. More winter conditions are on tap for parts of Northern California this weekend, and the National Weather Service predicts colder-than-average temperatures for the entire state next week. There also is a chance of more showers in Southern California in the coming days, which could bring up to half an inch of precipitation to some areas, according to the weather service. The atypical May weather will continue for the next few days, with a chance of showers on several days through Wednesday!
By Paul P. CNN California is on track to get more rain in a week than it sees in two months, all from unseasonal storm systems rolling through. A couple of storm systems will bring moderate to heavy snowfall to the Sierra Cascade range over the next several days. Travel impacts over the passes are likely.

California: Global warming, El Nino could cause wetter winters, drier conditions in other months
Winter has come to California ... in May. Record rainfall, more snow on the way
So here's the good news: Despite fears to the contrary, California isn't facing a year-round drought in our warming new world. However, UC Riverside Earth Sciences Professor Robert Allen's research indicates that what precipitation the state does get will be pretty much limited to the winter months -- think deluge-type rainfall rather than snow -- and non-winter months will be even dryer than usual, with little or no rain at all. Allen's latest findings build on his research that concluded global warming will bring increased winter precipitation to California through the end of this century. The paper focuses on how "greenhouse-gas-induced climate change" will affect drought conditions in the state. The findings are based on 40 climate models that were compared to actual precipitation, soil moisture, and streamflow in the state between and Historically, about 90 percent of California's rain and snow have come during the winter months of December, January, and February, Allen said, with sporadic rain scattered over the rest of the year.

An unusual weather pattern has brought precipitation to the parts of California and the Southwest during a typically dry time of year. The upper-level weather pattern has been blocked this week which can result in slower moving systems, sometimes in unexpected locations. In this case, an area of low pressure over central California will move southward into northern Mexico by Sunday. Systems tracking into the Southwest are not normally expected in May as the jet stream usually has retreated northward. May and June are usually the driest months of the year as the wet, winter season has ended and monsoon season has yet to begin. Heavy rainfall was reported Friday morning in the Interstate 5 corridor in Los Angeles and Ventura county mountains, where almost a quarter inch of rain fell in 10 minutes in Gorman, California.
