The young lady who works for me had an opportunity to visit CA & Palm Springs last week.... She loved it.
This time of year - October through the end of May is our "Season" weather is usually very good and your friend couldnt have had better luck as we have been sunny and in the 80's which is a bit above normal. Makes me happy to know She enjoyed it
looks like we are going to dropping back to a more normal range with highs ranging from 69 up to 80 in the next week or so - - - as to rain they still seem unsure - being surrounded by mountains it is pretty sure they will get some and even snow above 6000 feet, but whether or not any rain worth talking about will make it to the valley floor? only God knows the answer to that
