Rainfall totals around the Los Angeles area generally ranged from about 0.25 to 1.00 inch, with as much as 1.0 to 2.0 inches (or more) recorded in some foothill and mountain locations. Here's a copy of a NWS Information Statement listing some rainfall totals for the storm.
An NRL GOES composite visible/IR satellite image from 1:30 p.m. PST this afternoon shows a strong vorticity max and upper low center near Pt. Conception, embedded in very strong north-northwesterly flow associated with a digging trough. The upper low is somewhat moisture starved, but very energetic. GOES soundings around the base of the trough indicates precipitable water values on the order of 0.50 to 0.75 inch. Radar shows some convective shower activity associated with the disturbance.
The 18z models project that the low will continue to dive south down the coast before moving onshore in northern Baja Mexico. Both the NAM and GFS generate about 0.1 inch at Los Angeles over the next 24 hours, with somewhat more to the south -- about 0.4 inch at San Diego according to the NAM. Because of the convective nature of the system, precipitation may be widely scattered and variable. Some areas may record no rain and others significantly more (or less) than the projected values. Here's the Day 1-2 QPF forecast from the HPC.
Today's (un-interpreted) NWS 6-10 and 8-14 day outlooks call for above normal precipitation in Southern California. In support of this notion, the 12z run of the ECMWF develops a full latitude trough around December 17, and the 18z GFS brings a strong system into California around December 19. A lot could change between now and then, but we'll see!
