Rain and snow are likely to stick around Riverside County for most of the week, according to the National Weather Service.

Showers from a Christmas storm ended Sunday morning, but another storm is bringing strong gusty winds and another round of rain Monday through early Tuesday with the most significant precipitation Monday afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Rainfall is expected to range from 1 to 2 inches in the mountains, while amounts in the deserts will mostly be one-quarter inch or less.


Snow levels were expected at around 4,000 feet Monday, then around 3,500 feet late Monday evening. Several inches of snowfall is possible in the mountains above 4,000 to 4,500 feet.

Forecasters were less sure about Wednesday through Friday, but speculated that one inch or more could fall Wednesday followed by diminishing chances for measurable precipitation each day going into the weekend.

Temperatures will continue to be below average during the day and at night, with Tuesday’s highs possible nearing record lows for the date.

Sunday’s highs in the mountains were in the upper 30s and 40s, with lows dropping into the 20s. That pattern was expected to hold for the next few days, with temperatures rising only slightly on Friday.

In the valleys, forecasters called for highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s, shifting into the 50s Thursday and Friday, and lows in the 30s all week.
