LOS ANGELES (AP) - A powerful storm that swamped roadways and jammed traffic on Tuesday dumped a record 2.39 inches of rain in downtown Los Angeles, making it the wettest day of the year in Southern California.

The barrage brought the most rain in a calendar day in more than four years, the National Weather Service said.

The storm stretched east into the desert and south to San Diego County. In San Bernardino County, Yucaipa Ridge saw 5.4 inches of rain.

The wet weather was not expected to relieve the drought.

Scattered showers were possible Wednesday before the clouds move out and temperatures rise again, forecasters said.
