Rain returned to the San Fernando Valley Monday, wreaking havoc on freeways, leading authorities to close the Sepulveda Basin and putting swift water rescuers on alert. Authorities closed the streets in the Sepulveda Basin Monday morning until further notice and said they might be closed through the night because weather forecasters predicted the heaviest rains would hit the San Fernando Valley this morning. Woodland Hills was hit with the most rainfall, .92 inches between 4 p.m. Sunday and 4 p.

Rain-weary Southern Californians may wake up to more wetness this morning, but take heart: The cold Pacific storm that arrived Friday and snarled traffic with rain and blanketed low-lying foothills with snow is the last one forecast for a while. The storm, the second to hit the area in three days, dumped more than half an inch of rain in much of Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties. Isolated lightning and thunder were reported.

The storm system that brought up to 2 inches of rain to the San Fernando Valley over the weekend may have moved out of the area, but another system is on the way and will hit Southern California by this afternoon, weather forecasters said. Scattered rain in the morning will give way to thundershowers in the afternoon and wind gusts of up to 25 mph, said Wes Etheredge, a meteorologist for WeatherData Inc., which provides forecast information for The Times.

Mother Nature was definitely not smiling on the San Fernando Valley on Thursday. A sudden winter storm drenched roads, delaying commuters and hindering holiday shoppers, and caused power outages and even fires. But she may have tried to make up for it with a spectacular rainbow in the late afternoon that stretched across the sky and a bright orange and pink sunset. Thursday's rains began with light scattered showers shortly after midnight.

The brief respite from the heavy rains Saturday will come to an end today as a storm system moves southeast from the Pacific Ocean through Southern California, bringing rain through Wednesday, forecasters said. There will be a 40% to 50% chance of rain Monday morning increasing to 80% to 90% by the evening rush hour, said John Sherwin, a meteorologist with WeatherData Inc., which provides forecast information for The Times.

The Valley and much of Southern California began drying out Sunday, having weathered what meteorologists were calling the last in a record-breaking series of storms that killed at least seven people and put emergency services to a harrowing test. Although a few scattered mudslides continued to cause detours, law enforcement officials throughout the region reported that most roads, while soggy, were cleared.

A weekend of hurricane-force winds burdened much of the San Fernando Valley with a mammoth cleanup job Monday, dealing with trees that crashed onto streets and sidewalks, yards littered with wind-borne debris, shattered brick walls and severed electric and cable TV links. "A hurricane without the water," one Chatsworth woman called it.

While much of the country is suffering severe winter storms, the San Fernando Valley has been basking in unusually warm weather. Indeed, on Wednesday the hottest spot in the entire nation was Chatsworth, where the temperature soared to 86. That was a new record for the San Fernando Valley community, breaking by one degree the previous record for the day, set in 1980. It was about 20 degrees higher than usual for this time of year.
