The storm that moved through the Valley Wednesday dusted the mountains around Huntington Lake with light snowfall, but left the Valley largely untouched by rain, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service said.
Fresno Yosemite International Airport reported only a trace amount of rainfall in the city, said meteorologist Modesto Vasquez.
Merced had the most rain in the Valley, Vasquez said, with a report of 0.1 inch of rain as of 6:30 p.m. At the southern end of the Valley, Bakersfield had trace amounts of rain.
Vasquez said there were gusts of wind in the mountains in western Kern County that reached 59 mph but in Fresno the wind peaked Wednesday morning with gusts of 24 mph.
The official high temperature in Fresno Wednesday was 65 degrees, but Vasquez said today marks the start of a warmer stretch. The high temperature in Fresno is forecast to be 74 degrees today and it is expected to reach the low 80s by the weekend.
The high temperature Wednesday at Shaver Lake was reported to be 40 degrees, and the overnight low was forecast to drop to 24 degrees. The high temperature today is expected to reach 51 degrees.
Vasquez said no rain is forecast for the next week.
