Tired of picking up a soaked newspaper off your porch from yet another day of rain? Weather experts have some comfort for you: It will all be over soon.
National Weather Service officials said the rainstorm that's been battering Southern California should pass through Orange County by Thursday morning.
The storm, which started Friday, has brought record rain to some areas. Officials did not have data on Newport-Mesa or John Wayne Airport, but said the 1.74 inches of rain that fell Monday, and 4.63 inches overall since last week, were unusually high rainfalls.
Tuesday's rainfall was light in comparison, with the heaviest downpour expected Wednesday.
Even to some police officers' surprise, the deluge has caused few, if any, problems in either city. Newport Beach police reported a few traffic accidents, but nothing out of the ordinary.
There were no reports of flooding. Costa Mesa didn't have issues through Tuesday, though a sixth consecutive day of rain Wednesday does pose flooding concerns, officials said.
