No relief from rain in the Southland

The damp and gray will hang around Southern California with no relief likely until Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

The forecast calls for cloudy skies and a 50% chance of rain in Los Angeles and the surrounding area for most of the weekend.

Things could be much worse, however.  Northern California is suffering under a proper deluge, with high winds and heavy rain delaying flights in and out of San Francisco and briefly knocking out power on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on Friday.

The recent storms have dropped as much as 7 inches of rain in Sonoma County and 6 inches in Napa County.

What’s wet at sea level is turning to snow on 14,000-foot Mt. Shasta, which could be in for a U.S. record-breaking 200-inch snowfall this week, according to The Weather Channel.  The mountain set the previous record with 189 inches over six days in 1959.
