While rainfall rates aren’t expected to be too impressive, steady rain will make for “fairly good” rainfall totals, the weather service reported. More than an inch of rain had fallen in Ventura County by midmorning Monday, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Moderate rainfall fell through Monday afternoon and is expected to taper off Tuesday and Wednesday.

Rain raises concerns for residents living in recent burn areas and in the Hollywood Hills, where a concrete balcony and foundation fell from a hillside home last week.

Areas affected by last year's Fish Fire in Duarte are under yellow alert, meaning there are parking restrictions but there are no evacuations or restricted entries, officials said.

This recent storm is not expected to affect local mountain snow, and snow levels will remain high.

As of Monday, downtown Los Angeles has received more rain than it does on average in a full water year, which runs Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.

Drier and warmer conditions are in the forecast starting Wednesday, but more rain might be in the forecast Thursday, according to the weather service.
