A cold winter storm made a splash in the Santa Clarita Valley Monday, dumping more than an inch of rain, according to a National Weather Service official.

The rain total hit 1.24 inches and includes rainfall from 4 p.m. Sunday to 4 p.m. Monday, said Stuart Seto, a weather specialist.

"Most of it occurred after midnight to 9 a.m." he said.

The snow level dropped to 3,000 feet Monday, giving way to snow in Gorman and parts of Acton and Agua Dulce.

The heaviest rains have passed.

Forecasts for today and Wednesday call for intermittent showers and could bring a quarter of an inch more of rain, Seto said.

But the jackets and blankets will stay on as the cold temperatures are expected to last for the rest of the week.

"The daytime highs are 10 to 15 degrees below normal," he said.

Temperatures in the Santa Clarita Valley will linger in the 50s with lows in the 30s, the service predicts.

Despite periods of heavy rains, Monday's rain storm brought only minor flooding and minimal damage in the valley, according to Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Sam Padilla.
