Yes, it's still going to be rainy Tuesday, but the worst of six straight days of storms appears to be behind us.

The National Weather Service says scattered showers will continue through the night, and Southern California's trademark sun should return Wednesday (although the rain might return Saturday).

The Los Angeles basin and surrounding regions are expected to receive up to an inch of rain Tuesday, according to forecasters.

"Snow could fall on some of the highest peaks in the Santa Monica Mountains with significant accumulations from the Santa Barbara Mountains to Ventura Mountains to the San Gabriel Mountains in Los Angeles County," NWS officials said.

There could even be a dusting of snow in the Antelope Valley late Tuesday.

Six days of storms brought flooding, traffic delays and other hazards, but it also helped get the region comfortably above its rainfall goals. As of Tuesday afternoon, the greater Los Angeles area had received more than 85 percent of the rain it gets in a normal water year (measured from October to the following September). In a typical year, we'd have just over half of our rain at this point in time.
