Yesterday's rain sure felt good, and as evidenced in the video above, sure looked good too.

The time lapse video was put together by Jim Bumgardner, who said that he captured frames from the KABC7 web cams, which are located downtown. In it, we see clouds roll in and out over a rapidly darkening sky before a downpour hits. And just as quickly, the sun pops out again. Los Angeles sure looks beautiful fresh after a rainstorm.

After a very hot, very dry February in SoCal, the beginning of March has seen some inklings of the El Nino we were promised. Last week was sandwiched by a couple of storms; there were booming thunderstorms on Monday preceding a dry work week before Friday's storm hit yesterday afternoon.

More rain is expected starting Monday.
