When Amgen 2008 Tour of California racers crossed a dry Stage 6 finish line in Santa Clarita late Saturday afternoon, rain wasn't far behind them. Precipitation was enough to dampen a free rock concert in the evening.

Although it seemed like a deluge at times, the recent storm that rained out a Saturday night concert delivered just .17 of an inch through Sunday morning, bringing the seasonal total for the Santa Clarita Valley to 10.68 inches, Bill Hoffer of the National Weather Service said Sunday.

The rain was at its peak between 9:36 p.m. Saturday and 1:36 a.m. Sunday, when .14 of that .17 of an inch fell.

A "Rock the Bike" concert slated for 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday in connection with the 2008 Amgen Tour of California was canceled at 6:30 p.m. due to the rain.

"We've had growing crowds in this race despite the weather," Amgen tour host announcer Jeff Roake said Sunday.

"The race was blessed for its first two years with great weather, and we had strong competition and fan participation this year despite the rains," Roake said.

National Weather Service officials said scattered showers were possible this morning, but a drying trend would follow, with temperatures increasing for the rest of the week.

Mostly sunny skies and clear nights are expected through the week, with highs reaching 69 degrees by Tuesday.
