Southern California has seen massive rainfall the past few days, rivaling the amount the area would see over a few months — and there's more coming. 

The National Weather Service estimated a total of 4-8 inches of rain throughout the area, with LA City, Long Beach, Northridge, and Santa Clarita hovering around 6.5 inches. Once the storm passes through, Pasadena is expected to get a whopping 9.75 inches. 

"It is so rare to see numbers close to 4.5+ inches for just one location in just one day," said KCAL meteorologist Evelyn Taft.

Downtown Los Angeles received 4.10 inches of rain on Sunday, breaking the old record for February 4 by over 1.5 inches.
