After a week of violent storms that brought heavy rains, hail, and the threat of great destruction to Los Angeles, and snow to local mountains, today we're getting a reprieve from the wet weather. Rainfall totals reveal just how soaked we were, as reported by KTLA: "Between 10 Tuesday night and 5p.m. Friday, rainfall was measured at 6.37 inches at the San Gabriel Dam; 4.41 inches at Sepulveda Canyon at Mulholland; 4.38 inches in Newhall; 3.41 inches in Long Beach; 3.40 inches in Van Nuys; 3.38 inches at the Hollywood Reservoir; 3.23 inches in Bel Air; and 2.53 inches in downtown Los Angeles." But the sun will last at least through the weekend, and while there is a weaker storm system due to arrive in Southern California Monday or Tuesday, it may in fact miss the LA-area entirely.
