Today, this morning it started in L.A after 2years. The rainy season is finally coming back. Well I hope it's coming back. So how frequently does it rain where you live?

Not as much as it used to ..I live in the South of France -not to far from Arles and the Camargue Natural Parc.
Since June we only had some very short thunderstorms and not enough rain.

the red-areas are the ones with the biggest deficit in rain..

Here in Sweden it rains pretty much. Sometimes it can be a really bad and rainy weather for over one week´.

That is great.

Remember when I was in L.A last summer, it was so freaking hot.

Hah, when I saw the thread title, I'd already guessed you were from LA  Smile

Man, traffic slows to a damn crawl when it rains here. And not because there's a traffic jam!

At least we should have some nice, clear days coming up.

Not quite 2 years...it was raining the one time I was there in April of 2006.

Only I could visit Los Angeles on one of it's rare rainy days. If y'all needed me to come back so it would rain again, you should have said something! Big grin

As for how much it rains here- Not e-bloody-nough! I live in Alabama!

I think it's opposite ends of the spectrum though...we get light rain for nine months of the year, and you guys get occasional torrential downpours, right? (Katrina notwithstanding.  Sad )

We have all kinds of rain here.....like my favourite, horizontal turbo-sleet, the kind of stuff that stops you breathing, which is probably a good thing because you'd drown if you did.

It's only rained a couple of times this year so far....the first time was from May to October, and it's raining now.

I'm 25 miles east of you. Instead of the drizzle, we get actual rain.

According to Sperling's best places:

Seattle, WA, gets 35.9 inches of rain per year in 155 precipitation days.
Snoqualmie, WA gets 61.1 inches of rain per year in 186 precipitation days.

US average is 36.6 inches of rain in 101 precipitation days.

That is really high. When we was over Christmas in LA last year it was not sooo hot. But it was still really hot for me compared to Sweden. When I returned that winter to Sweden it was like a shock for me when we arrived in ARN. I got chesty immediately.

Off the top of my head, we get between 2500mm and 4000mm of rain per year where I live, with it raining one day in two. I live between Plymouth on the sea, and Dartmoor, so we get a lot of inclement weather!

Eh? We had rain in LA and OC counties just a couple of months ago. It wasn't much...drizzled for half a day or so...but it still rained.

Tell me about it. The 405 past SNA this morning was a crawl. Any slower and we'd have been going backwards. Now I've got the joy of a drive up to Chatsworth later this afternoon. Middle of the day should be fine, but it's the 3pm+ return traffic that is depressing me.

Ouch. I hate driving up to the Valley. Sorta depresses me for some reason.

But yeah, luckily, my commute is 6 miles, all on surface streets. But driving down Hawthorne Blvd. this morning, all the traffic was going about 30 mph. And there was no one in front of them.

So strange to me.

Same up here in PRC, today it got all foggy and there's a slight drizzle going on, though I wouldn't quite call it a storm really...

By tomorrow it'll be clear in a million though.

I love AZ weather, so predictable Big grin
