A winter storm system that dropped about three-quarters of an inch of rain on downtown Los Angeles and snow in the mountains will be largely gone by midnight Sunday, with only a lingering threat of overnight showers on north-facing slopes in northern Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Monday through Friday will be dry. A slight warming trend will nudge temperatures up early in the week.

The storm from the Gulf of Alaska boosted rainfall totals a bit, but they remain about 7 inches below normal for this point in the rain year, which begins July 1. “It helped. But not a lot,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Rich Thompson.

There is a slight chance of rain next weekend.
