In addition, Frank Sinatra Drive at the Whitewater Wash in Rancho Mirage was reopened.

However, officials said numerous weather-related road and highway closures remained in place as crews across the Coachella Valley worked to repair them, including:

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway also remained closed indefinitely.

The Palm Springs Police Department said because of the rain forecast, future reopenings could be delayed.
