Another dreary day in paradise. If it rains again today, as forecasters expect, it will be the seventh day in a row that the sunny Southland has been all that it's not supposed to be. Gray, chilly and wet. The mountains have been smothered by cloud banks, the beaches bikini-free and the swimming pools lonely. "Enough is enough.

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.

The streets of Los Angeles have been soaked by storms, but, so far this year, they have been free of something else often associated with rain--sewage. Two months ago, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sued Los Angeles for violations of the Clean Water Act, saying its past rate of sewage spills, averaging 50 per month, was inordinately high. Since then, the city has weathered this winter's storms with no sewage overflows. Almost 14 inches of rain has fallen in Los Angeles since Jan.

The rain that fell across an already-drenched Southland on Monday triggered small landslides and flooded low-lying intersections, and forecasters said more is on its way, off and on, throughout the week and into the weekend. Meteorologists said the continuing wet weather, which has pushed rainfall totals well above average for this time of year, is the result of a dip south in high-altitude jet stream winds that are funneling the Pacific storm track directly into Southern California.

It's no El Nino, but Saturday's heavy rains added to a wetter-than-average February across the Los Angeles region, forecasters said. The Pacific storm is expected to drop up to 2 inches of rain by Monday night, though only two-tenths of an inch had been recorded in downtown Los Angeles by Saturday night. Nearly half an inch fell in Chatsworth, said Bruce Rockwell, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.

More rain and snow are expected today and Sunday as a series of winter storms continues to invade Southern California. Forecasters said scattered light showers should start falling in the Los Angeles area before dawn today, bringing about a quarter of an inch of rain before the precipitation starts tapering off at nightfall. Light snow is expect in the mountains above 3,000 feet.

Light rain and moderate snow fell in Southern California on Monday, and forecasters said there's more on the way. The National Weather Service said high-altitude jet-stream winds are continuing to funnel the winter storm track through Southern California, with rain and snow expected Thursday and Friday and again on Sunday. However, none of these storms is expected to be as strong as the one that dumped up to 7 inches of rain in the foothills and up to 6 feet of snow in the mountains a week ago.
