Flash flood watches have been extended for wildfire burn areas, where the soaking brought worries of debris flows and flooding that did not immediately materialize. But the saturation from previous rains and the next round of showers could change that quickly.

Downtown Los Angeles received 1.15 inches of rain Tuesday, breaking a 1961 record for the day. Nearly 1 ½ inches fell on San Francisco.

Traffic was snarled and flights were delayed in cities around the state."
