LOS ANGELES (AP) — Some Southern California mountain peaks are sporting a light dusting of snow after the departure of an overnight weather system, but overall precipitation did little to make up for the region's rainfall deficit.
The National Weather Service reports that as of 4 a.m. Monday most rainfall totals amounted to just hundredths or tenths of an inch.
Several locations in San Luis Obispo County fared better, receiving more than an inch of rain.
Downtown Los Angeles received .14 inch to start what is normally the location's wettest month.
Last month, downtown had just a trace of precipitation, nowhere close to the January average of 3.12 inches.
Downtown has recorded barely more than an inch since the start of the rain year on July 1, a deficit of 6.56 inches.
