Rains cause a miserable afternoon commute in L.A.

January 26, 2010 |  5:54 pm

Light rains this afternoon clogged the afternoon commute across Southern California.

The Times traffic map was a sea of red this afternoon, with major delays in the freeways out of downtown Los Angeles. Injury accidents were reported on the southbound 5 Freeway north of downtown, on the 405 south in Culver City, on the 605 south near the 60 and on the 105 near the 710 Freeway.

Less than a half-inch of rain is expected from this new storm system, which is much smaller than last week's series of rainstorms.

Light showers are expected to continue overnight, with cloudy skies and a 20% chance of rain Wednesday.
