Nearly a quarter inch of rain fell in part of the San Fernando Valley Sunday, causing a few early morning crashes but generally giving the Southland a sprinkle before a gorgeous glorious, puff-cloud sky.

Unofficial, automatic rain gauges showed .24 inches of rain at Aliso Canyon, on the northern side of the San Fernando Valley. And .22 inches fell on Newhall Pass, north of San Fernando.

Most of the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles south of the mountains got a trace of rain, but more fell in the South Bay and on the Palos Verdes peninsula. Rolling Hills got a .19 inch dousing, according to the automated system operated by the L.A. County Department of Public Works.

Puffy clouds with white tops and dark bottoms dappled the Southland skies at midmorning, as a weak cold weather front moved out of the area.

The National Weather Service predicted widely scattered sprinkles Sunday, clearing Sunday evening, and then another possible dose of sprinkles Monday night.

Another chance for sprinkles might arrive Thursday, the NWS said.
