Get Ready for a Change in Weather, Rain Expected This Week

The wet weather could come as soon as Wednesday.

Fair weather will give way to widespread rain in Riverside County later this week, meteorologists said.

The shift in the weather should begin as early as late Wednesday into early Thursday, when a weak trough of low pressure will bring gusty winds and a small chance of light precipitation over and west of the mountains, according to the National Weather Service.

By Friday night through Saturday, a stronger Pacific low pressure system will bring strong winds and widespread moderate to locally heavy precipitation throughout the county, the agency said.

(my keyboard batteries kept dying--looks like half my comment was missed) anyway--- hmmm. I "think" you're wrong about that. Not that mankind changes climate--but the effects of damage we do. It seems impossible that all the gases and toxins we emit , cause to emit, into the air would have 0 effect. Also, mass changes to several environments--land & water. I wouldn't even know the half of possible causes we are part of. Here's my bottom line point-- If you remove what you think is a trivial part of any natural environment, changes begin to occur. The actual environment changes. We know this as fact. It becomes a domino effect because one thing affects another, affects another, and so on. Within time the entire environment is completely changed all because one minor factor was removed. please watch this, if you haven't seen it already--it's AMAZING!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysa5OBhXz-Q So if removing one minor element can change to this degree--I can not bring myself to believe that we have absolutely NO effect on our climate. I do agree climate change is cyclical--but that doesn't mean we don't cause changes within and direct;ly to the cycles. I have no facts or figures--just basing this on my own thoughts and common sense. If that's not enough, hehehe, then I'll start looking for sources to back up my "opinion." :o) Anyway, Chris--watch that film--even if you don't agree with me, you'll appreciate that at the very least!

@belle, I think you might be confusing pollution which is different than climate. I agree we should keep pollution to a minimum as it keeps us and our progeny healthy. More of these so called greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere during normal annual volcanic activity than mankind has ever created. We don't come close. There isn't enough scientific data to definitively define past climate or accurately predict future ice age or global warming. Don't get sucked into the lies that local temperature change around urban areas equate to global climate change. I'm not sure how old you are but I remember being taught of the coming ice age in the 1970's and then the global warming epidemic in the 80's and 90's. Both were man-made problems according to the theorists. It's utter rubbish. I'll try and watch the movie link later. Thanks.

Take a look at this link. It shows annual rainfall in our area since 2000. http://weathercurrents.com/temecula/ArchivePrecipitation.do

no, not confusing the two. I actually do think that the pollution we cause could possibly affect the atmosphere, which in turn affects the climate. errr…I get what you're saying about volcanic activity, but--that is still an organic gas/pollution. I'm specifically speaking about the junk man does to cause inorganic detriment. What I'm saying is that I would find it unbelievable that the harm we cause to our environments, atmosphere would not affect our climates in some way. I DO think we come close--I think we OVERsTEP as a matter of fact. Are you honestly telling me that of all the 7 billion ppl on earth emitting all the various causes of toxic waste would be less than volcanic activity? The movie has nothing to do with "climate" but rather the point of how one small part in any environment can cause great changes. We do some terrible destruction to our earth--you have to at least admit that. So how could that damage not cause some sort of effect?

Greenhouses gases are greenhouse gases whether they are caused by nature or mankind. They are the same. Try this analogy, open your toaster oven door and turn it on in your kitchen. You feel the heat? Then go upstairs in your bathroom and see how long it takes before you can feel the heat it emits there. Do you see my point? Things we do may effect us locally but not globally.
