The powerful storm that brought heavy winds and the risk of severe flooding to much of Southern California on Sunday was expected to linger over the Los Angeles area until Tuesday morning.
The heaviest rainfall was expected to occur overnight and into Monday morning. A National Weather Service forecast said that up to three inches or more of rain was expected to fall through Tuesday in parts of Los Angeles and Orange Counties — totals that would meet or exceed the average ones for February in some locations.
