As of 3p.m., the storm produced 0.20 of an inch of rain in Pasadena and Burbank, 0.07 of an inch in Whittier and 0.06 of an inch in West Covina. San Gabriel recorded 0.12 of an inch, 0.10 fell in Los Angeles and 0.08 was recorded on Mount Wilson. No local law enforcement agencies reported any rain-related problems. The storm was expected to drop up to a quarter-inch of rain in low-lying areas and up to an inch of the wet stuff in the mountains, said meteorologist Jamie Smith of the National Weather Service. “This is the first storm of the season to produce any measurable amount of snow in the mountains,” Smith said. The mountains were expected to get from 3 to 7 inches of snow, “which is more than we received from the first couple of storms of the year,” said Smith. The storm cleared out by Saturday evening, although some lingering showers were expected late Saturday, said Smith. “Behind the rains are going to be some gusty winds,” she said. Winds of between 20mph and 30mph are forecast “in the wake of the storm,” according to Smith. The next chance of wet weather will likely come Wednesday, when the chance of measurable precipitation has been set at 30percent, according to the NWS.
