Palisades Rain Chart Over Seven Decades

As Southern Californians are increasingly warned about the ongoing severe drought conditions, resident Ted Mackie has compiled a chart of local rainfall over the past 73 years.

The driest cycle was the five years between 1987 and 1991, when Pacific Palisades received less than 10 inches of rain each year.

The five driest years on record were 1976, 1990, 2007, 2012 and 2014. The five years with heaviest rainfall accumulation were 1978, 1983, 1995, 1998 and 2006.
