In Azusa, drivers were extra careful as they traveled down slick streets.

The Inland Empire also got hit with some rain. A video shot in Yucaipa showed heavy rain coming down outside a home.

Unfortunately, the passing storm system didn’t appear to bring any snow with it. The Bear Mountain Resort didn’t report any new snow.

“We definitely feel it. There’s no question about it. We’re praying for snow; we’re dancing for snow,” said Dan McKernan with the Big Bear Visitors Bureau. “We’re hoping that this possible storm that’s coming in this weekend kicks off February because we’re still optimistic that February and March are going to bring precipitation.”

The rain arrived just a few hours after Gov. Jerry Brown met with water leaders in Southern California to discuss the state’s water crisis. Earlier in January, Brown declared a statewide drought emergency.

As for the rest of the day Friday, there was a 10-percent chance of isolated showers in the Los Angeles area, according to the National Weather Service.
