Riverbank weather over the past week benefited from enduring waves of rain, with the last fading away to the south on Thursday afternoon, Jan. 12. The weekend brought foggy mornings, clear afternoon skies and cold temperatures overnight.

Taking the opportunity to dry out a bit, areas of flooding persisted with the rain forecast to resume this week, potentially replenishing those puddles, as well as street gutters and drainage basins in local parks.

The skies cleared last Thursday, leaving a bank of clouds to the southwest, reflecting in some of the larger puddles. Similar puddles pictured in years gone by were smaller but just as reflective.

The enduring, though welcome, rain last week left the football/soccer field somewhat flooded at Angelo Novi Stadium on the Riverbank High School campus. Although the boys’ teams played on Monday last week, the varsity girls’ soccer game there was postponed by referees, who deemed the field unplayable.
