Fabio has withered away to nothing more than a ghost, but that's not stopping his remains from affecting California.
It is rare that rain from the remnants of tropical storms to affect the Los Angeles basin. The last time was with the remnants of Hurricane Dean in August of 2007 that made landfall in Santa Barbara. The rainfall from Dean caused minor flooding problems across Southern California.
The rain from Fabio will continue across portions of Southern California early today, while it expands farther north into central California and Nevada.
Bakersfield, Calif., received 0.02 of an inch of rain today. Rainfall in this portion of California is rare, especially this time of the year.
The impacts will be periods of rain and even a couple of heavier thunderstorms that could cause flash flooding problems.
