The first significant rain of the winter in the Imperial Valley fell for 12 hours straight Sunday through Monday, bringing a half inch of rain to the El Centro area but few reports of damage.
County meteorologist Jim Christopherson said the Valley was hit by a storm centered off the coast of Los Angeles.
He said while the storm was starting to weaken this morning, showers likely would continue today and Tuesday.
Christopherson said cloudy skies will continue through Friday but no rain is expected beyond Tuesday.
He added it is difficult to predict weather patterns for the next week.
Christopherson said the storm is different from recent storms that moved through the Valley. He said while more rain fell, the storm brought with it mild temperatures; earlier storms brought colder weather.
Temperatures were expected to reach 62 degrees today and 65 degrees Tuesday. Later in the week temperatures will reach the high 60s.
