These are extraordinary amounts.

More heavy rains have fallen over the Los Angeles basin today. 

At 2pm, UCLA's weather station has received about two-thirds of that (11.82") in just the last 24 hours! Normal for the year is 17.73 inches. UCLA is in the west LA suburb of Westwood. This is truly an extraordinary storm.

Important forecast information from Noon
Above is the additional forecast rainfall from now until 10am PST tomorrow. 

This is the additional forecast for 10pm Wednesday. 

This heavy rain across the Southwest, especially in Arizona and New Mexico, will ease mild to moderate drought conditions. However, it will cause additional serious flooding in California. 

As of 1pm, radar shows the rain associated with the atmospheric river extending from the California coast to northern Utah. 
The flooding in the Southland will get worse before it gets better. Another slug of heavy rain is moving across Los Angeles as this is being written (radar below).
Please check back for later updates.
