Another, weaker storm is expected to pass over Southern California later in the week, with a 40% to 50% chance of rain Thursday afternoon to Friday evening, National Weather Service Metereologist Eric Boldat said.
The rain did not cause any major incidents of flooding or mudslides in Glendale, Fire Capt. Steve Parrish said. But it did lead to a jump in traffic accidents on Monday night.
"We had five traffic collisions in about a three-hour period, which is about double our normal activity," Parrish said, adding that none of the accidents, most of them on the Ventura (134) Freeway, resulted in serious injuries.
The city closed Camino San Rafael to vehicle traffic Monday afternoon, and the road is expected to remain closed through Friday.
The closure was based on the recommendation of the city's geotechnical engineer, who has requested that the road be shut down at times of heavy rain.
The engineer will reevaluate the road's condition this morning and make a recommendation as to whether to reopen it.
The road was damaged in last winter's record rainstorms, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency has allocated $2 million to repair the roadway. Crews have already begun work on the project, expected to be completed in June, and some of the excavated debris work will have to be removed before the road is reopened, said Ritch Wells, public information officer for the city.
The heavy onslaught of rain on Monday night caused a sink-hole to open up at the intersection of Alta Canyada and Foothill Boulevard, in La Cañada Flintridge.
The road, previously under construction, was closed for at least six hours causing a backlog of traffic, said Crescenta Valley Sheriff desk sergeant Don Bee.
High temperatures for today will be in the upper 50s and 60s and lows will dip into the upper 30s to low 40s.
Temperatures will remain in the mid-50s to mid-60s Thursday, with lows in the 40s at night.
