In Ventura County, the totals include 1.1” in Ventura, nearly an inch in Oxnard, and three quarters of an inch in Thousand Oaks. The heaviest rainfall has been in the mountains. There’s been 4.5” of rain at KCLU’s transmitter on Gibraltar Peak, near Montecito.

The heaviest rainfall is moving out of our area, but we can expect lighter rain on and off through Thursday.
