SR rain total for week hits 6.63 inches

A week of steady rain has trashed local roads, felled trees and wreaked havoc on traffic, but it also dumped enough water to pull most of Sonoma County even with annual rainfall totals.

Santa Rosa is nearly even with the average after being pounded by more than six inches of rain since Saturday.

The 6.36 inches of rain that have fallen since the storms began a week ago have put Santa Rosa's yearly totals at 15.56 inches, double that amount at this time last year and just shy of the average annual rainfall of 15.7 inches.

Petaluma has had 6.5 inches of rain fall since Saturday, while eight inches have fallen in Ukiah and Cazadero has been pounded by nearly 12 inches.

More rain is coming, although forecasters say the week will look nothing like last week.

Rains will fall locally on and off through Sunday and into Monday, according to National Weather Service forecaster Bob Benjamin.

A brief respite will be followed by another system moving in early Tuesday.

High temperatures will be in the upper to mid 50s through the week with lows in the 40s, Benjamin said.
