Light showers from the last of a series of storm that passed through the region since last week is making for a wet Monday morning commute.

The storms – which pummelled Northern California with several inches of rain – should finally exit Southern California Monday afternoon, with sunshine returning to the forecast.

The storms were not a major rain event, dropping about .63 inches in Manhattan Beach to .98 inches in San Dimas.

The third powerful storm in a week drenched an already saturated Northern California, but concerns of serious flooding eased as the system moved through faster than expected. The storm dropped up to an inch of rain per hour yesterday in some areas, toppling trees and knocking out electrical service to tens of thousands.
