November's Rainfall Scorecard in L.A. County
Rainfall, November 2021, Los Angeles County

November rainfall in L.A. County came in far below normal. This, understandably causes some concern, of course, considering current climate change trends. However, before we abandon all hope, this November was not the worst on record. Of L.A. County's last 145 years, 22 recorded a trace or less of rainfall in November. This is only the first such November since 2000. As for cumulative seasonal rainfall through November, this season doesn't even rank anywhere close to being the driest on record...so far.

Our Story in Pictures
Atomic Bomb Test, Los Angeles, 1955

Photo from the Security Pacific National Bank Photo Collection at the Los Angeles Public Library.

March 1, 1955, 5:27 a.m. An early morning atomic bomb test at the Nevada Test Site, about 300 miles away, lights up the sky above Los Angeles County. During the 1950s, 120 Nevada atomic bomb tests were conducted, about half of them in the dark early morning hours, giving Los Angeles County, even hundreds of miles away, more than 50 early morning "atomic sunrises."
