A few light showers pattered into the Southland on Monday, but they were about all the rain that Southern California got from a cold front that moved across the northern and central parts of the state.
The front did dump snow in the Sierra Nevada, signaling an early winter there.
Orange County commuters saw just enough rain to keep windshield wipers going and pavement slick during the evening rush hour. By late afternoon, only traces of moisture had been recorded in El Toro and San Juan Capistrano.
The National Weather Service said occasional light rain during the evening would give way to partly cloudy skies today with highs in the middle 60s to low 70s. A warming trend was seen for Wednesday with mostly clear skies.
Monday's high in Orange County was 71 degrees in Santa Ana, after an overnight low of 58 in San Juan Capistrano.
