California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball said there were 150 traffic collisions from midnight Saturday to 4:40 p.m., compared to 114 for the same period a week ago. Forecasters expect partly cloudy skies today for the San Fernando Valley region, with highs in the mid-50s to mid-60s, and lows tonight in the mid-30s to upper-40s. Monday will be mostly sunny, with highs in the 60s to lower-70s. The vanguard of a Pacific storm reached the Southland Saturday morning, but the system wasn’t as powerful as initially forecast. By 9:15 a.m., light rain was reported in Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Los Angeles International Airport, Van Nuys and Burbank, but only a tenth of an inch of rain fell on downtown Los Angeles and .20 inch on Burbank by 5 p.m., with other areas recording similar amounts. “It was a fast-moving cold front – we got the tail end of it – that just roared right through the West Coast,” said National Weather Service spokesman Bill Hoffer. Initially, forecasters were expecting rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches along the coast, and 3 to 5 inches in the foothills, Hoffer said. last_img read more
