It’s Not Always Sunny in SoCal

The weather in southern California in 2023 was far from “always sunny”. The year began with atmospheric rivers and flooding, took a cold turn with a blizzard, moved into tornado season, snuck in Tropical Cyclone Hilary, and finished with a 20-year surf event causing coastal flooding. The NWS worked closely with Core Partners through these events to support disaster readiness, response, and recovery.
