Seems the experts were wrong about it being a dry year. This is turning out to be one of the wettest Decembers on record in Los Angeles. And the heavy stuff from this storm is still to come, later tonight. Here's the rain totals map I always prefer, from the county's public works website, with rain gauge measurements for the past 72 hours. Seven-plus inches at the DWP headquarters in the Civic Center, six-plus at the Hollywood Reservoir. Click on the map to blow it up. Rainfall totals since Oct. 1 are after the jump. Or you can go to the map page to select readings by different time frames.
Remember September?: Record-breaking heat
