Residents throughout the Valley were greeted with wet porches and streets on their morning commute today.
While the storm system is expected to bring more showers through Wednesday, county meteorologist Jim Christopherson said the showers will be nowhere near the tropical-like prolonged rain that the Valley experienced last week. However, he said there is a threat of thunderstorms and hail in the desert.
Christopherson estimated the Valley will see about one-tenth to a quarter inch of precipitation.
The rain is part of a storm system affecting other areas of Southern California, from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles and San Diego counties.
"The actual center of disturbance is 200 miles west off San Diego," Christopherson said. "The disturbance is slowly moving inland."
The Valley should expect unsettled weather that is periodically clear and rainy, said Christopherson.
The skies are expected to be clear Thursday and Friday, he said.
