The rainstorm that landed in Los Angeles yesterday made for treacherous conditions on local roads and for some residents whose homes faced the threat of collapsing hillsides and debris flow, particularly in the recent burn areas, like those of the massive Station Fire.

The rain, however, will taper off this morning, and by 10 a.m. the Winter Storm Watch will be lifted. We can expect to have partly cloudy conditions for the remainder of the day, but we'll stay rain-free for the next few days with sunny or mostly sunny skies and temps in the upper 60s and low 70s.

Last night an evacuation shelter was set up at La Cañada High School, where American Red Cross volunteers were ready to greet anyone who was made to leave their hillside home as part of the mandatory evacuation orders issued in the area. "36 homes in La Canada Flintridge, six in La Crescenta and two in the Big Tujunga area" were evacuated last night, as the threat of debris flow and mudslides loomed over the recently-fire stripped hills, according to cbs2. This morning, those evacuation orders were lifted.
