CALIFORNIA—After a winter with an abnormally high amount of precipitation, showers are expected beginning this week, on Sunday and Monday.
Last weekends rainfall through Southern California caused floods, mudslides, power outages, toppled trees and resulted in the deaths of several people. No more than two inches is expected to fall next week, compared to last weekend where some parts of Southern California saw up to 9 inches of rain.
Between the beginning of December 2016 and the end of January 2017, rainfall in Los Angeles has exceeded the normal seasonal amount by almost seven inches, according to the Los Angeles Almanac.
Rainfall for the month of February has yet to be recorded. With the recent storms and the showers expected next week, the monthly precipitation total is expected to exceed the average of 3.8 inches for the month of February. Some parts of Southern California remain in a moderate drought amidst all the rainfall.
