Rain, rain go away

Rain departs but may return for weekend drip

Two-year-old Steven Sorrow, of Canyon Country, launches a kite at Todd Longshore Park Tuesday afternoon.

The sun is expected to return for a couple of days with a chance of rain returning for the weekend, according the National Weather Service.

With rain drenching Santa Clarita Valley on and off Monday and today the Santa Clara River swelled to become a muddy torrent of water under the McBean Parkway bridge near the Santa Clarita Post Office on Tuesday.

If local residents need any other reminder that this is still winter, Dennis Swanson, who supplies the National Weather Service with data collected from his Canyon Country home, reported logging wind chill temperatures of 30 degrees.

High temperatures forecast for today and Thursday are in the mid-60s. Overnight lows for both nights are expected to be in the mid-40s, according to the forecast issued Tuesday by the Oxnard weather station of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The latest storm dumped most of its rain - about an inch - Monday, forcing the CHP to shut down the Interstate, north of Castaic.

So far this month, almost four inches of rain dropped on Santa Clarita Valley.

Local officials at the Newhall County Water District and the Castaic Lake Water Agency urge homeowners to make sure their sprinkler systems remain turned off in ongoing efforts to conserve water.
