Trace of rain dampens Santa Clarita Valley

Cloudy skies overhead finally meant some rainfall for the Santa Clarita Valley on Wednesday, with some areas receiving more than a tenth of an inch of precipitation, according to the National Weather Service.

Approximately .12 inches of rain fell in the Newhall Pass throughout the day with .04 inches falling in Saugus, forecasters said.

The rainfall was a stark departure from the weekend, when gusting Santa Ana winds and low humidity had officials warning of extreme fire danger.

However, rainfall totals in the Santa Clarita Valley paled in comparison to some in nearby areas. Rain in the northern portions of the San Fernando Valley, for instance, fell at a rate of about a third of an inch per hour during the height of the storm

Wednesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

The one-day storm was due to be cleared out of the area by Thursday.

Snow levels are expected to be as low as 5,500 feet Thursday morning, with light snow accumulations possible at higher elevation areas.

Temperatures should remain relatively low Thursday, with highs not even topping 70 degrees. But weekend temperatures are forecast in the mid-70s with lows in the mid-50s.
