The latest storm front to thunder through Southern California dumped more than an inch of rain on parts of Orange County on Monday, but failed to end the drought locally, officials said. However, rainfall totals led one official Monday to declare an end to the drought in Ventura and southern Santa Barbara counties, spreading hopes along the drenched California coast that restrictions on water use may soon ease elsewhere.

Claiming that the city allowed an inadequate drainage system in a neighborhood above theirs, several homeowners in Hidden Hills have sued the city for damages they say occurred after last winter's rainstorms. The lawsuits were filed in Orange County Superior Court by John and Barbara Conklin; Thomas and Betty Duteau; David and Karen Engel; James and Maureen Tunstill; and Dana and Pamela Hunter.

Another dreary day in paradise. If it rains today, as forecasters expect, it will be the seventh day in a row that the sunny Southland has been what it's not supposed to be. Gray, chilly and wet. Mountains have been smothered by clouds and beaches bikini-free. In the last two months the area has been pelted with 14 inches of rain, just half an inch short of the norm for the entire season, which runs from July 1 through June 30.

Rain is expected throughout Orange County today, though not as heavy as the storms that swept across the region a month ago, forecasters say. Weather experts say there is a 70% chance of light showers that are expected to last until late afternoon, with temperatures near 60 degrees. By tonight, the skies should clear, though the temperatures are expected to reach the low 50s, said weather analyst John Sherwin of WeatherData, which provides forecasts for The Times.

A storm that dropped nearly an inch of rain on some parts of Orange County on Wednesday has caused at least one expert to soften previous assessments of the area's "drought-like" season. "I wouldn't call it a drought, but a dry spell," said Stacey Johnstone, a meteorologist for WeatherData Inc., which provides forecasts for The Times. "I think what you'll end up with is a season that's a little drier than normal, but definitely not a drought."

The first storm of the new millennium passed through Orange County on Tuesday, filling flood-control channels with runoff and making wind chimes jingle but barely affecting the area's yearlong drought. "It didn't make much of a dent--sorry," said Amy Talmage, a meteorologist with WeatherData Inc., which provides forecasts for The Times. "If I could have made the rain harder, I would have."

Several hilltop residents were wishing for dry weather Thursday after relentless rains washed out at least one backyard and Caltrans crews prepared to work overtime to stabilize a slipping hillside. Maple Street residents said they were not planning to evacuate their homes but joined Caltrans and others keeping a watch on the steep slope abutting their backyards. Police and fire crews remained on alert, and utilities officials were poised to cut gas and water lines at a moment's notice.

The light showers and cool temperatures that draped over parts of Orange County on New Year's Day may return tonight and continue into Friday, courtesy of a storm system from the central part of the state. Forecasters said the rain, which is concentrated around Santa Barbara, may reach Orange County in light spurts. "Certainly nothing too terribly impressive around your area" is expected, said Jon Erdman, meteorologist for WeatherData Inc., which provides forecasts for The Times.

Enough already. We get the point. "It's been pretty stubborn," concedes Jon Erdman, a meteorologist with Weatherdata, which provides forecasts for The Times. "We've just got all this moisture left over that gets squeezed out in showers." Sounds familiar. For days, that moisture has hung over Orange County like a leaky canopy. Every few minutes, the canopy springs a leak, and a few mini-droplets fall. Then someone patches the leak and things dry out. Until the next leak.

Orange County got lucky Wednesday when a Pacific storm petered out, but a few showers may linger this morning before the skies clear. For a day. Forecasters say another chilly storm should arrive by early Saturday and stay over the weekend, but it was unclear how strong it might be. The intermittent showers Wednesday produced about half an inch of rain along coastal Orange County, causing the usual rash of traffic accidents and large puddles on some streets.
