The 2.43 inches that San Francisco received by 4 p.m. obliterated the previous mark for any day in October - 2.29 inches, set in 1969. It's also more than 10 percent of what the city normally receives during an entire year.

The high-water mark by late afternoon was set in Ben Lomond in the Santa Cruz Mountains, which had received 9.14 inches. Elsewhere, 5.63 inches had fallen in San Rafael, 3.14 in Concord, 3.79 at the Oakland Museum and 2.04 in San Jose.

I hope some of that rain makes it down this way to SoCal, we really need it.

No. The Santa Cruz Mountains are along the borders of Santa Cruz and Santa Clara Counties, then go up through the middle of San Mateo County.

Think 9 inches in a day was a lot?

At Big Sur I'm hearing this storm dumped over 16 inches of rain.

A measly 4.5 inches here. 10% of our annual rainfall, the earliest I can remember fire season ending too.
