A light dusting of rain covered parts of Southern California overnight into early Sunday morning, signaling the start of the rainy season.

“It was more Orange County and the northern Inland Empire,” said James Brotherton, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in San Diego. “The southern Inland Empire didn’t see much of anything.”

The rain mostly missed Los Angeles County, with only a trace amount reported at the Los Angeles International Airport. Torrance saw the most rain of all reporting Los Angeles County cities with .17 inches.

Heaviest hit places in Southern California were in the Santa Ana hills or Pico basin, which saw .2 inches, and San Clemente with .16. Laguna Canyon received .12 inches.

The light storm mostly missed Riverside, with only Beaumont reporting .01 inches.

Cooler-than-normal weather is expected to linger over Southern California through early this week and a slight chance of rain will remain in effect through Monday morning.

Temperatures are expected to pick up slightly to the normal mid-70s by Wednesday only to drop again this coming weekend, when cooler temperatures and a slight chance of rain are forecast.
