Another bout of rain is in the forecast through this evening as a Pacific low pressure system moves inland through northern Baja and Southern California, forecasters said.
"The best chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms will be in the mountains and foothills in the afternoon and evening,'' according to the weather service.
Forecasters said drier and warmer weather was expected to prevail Tuesday and Wednesday, but the next storm in the series would likely bring cooler weather and gusty winds to parts of the county on Thursday.
