Storm brings more than an inch of rain to parts of Sonoma County

The first serious storm in weeks swept through the North Bay early Wednesday, knocking out power and bringing much-needed rain.

Rainfall at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport early Wednesday totaled 1.34 inches.

In other areas National Weather Service volunteer rain watchers reported 1.29 inches in Cloverdale and 1.6 inches in Monte Rio. In Petaluma .31 inches fell and a Santa Rosa resident recorded .39 inches of rain.

There has been no sustained rainfall since the start of the year other than spits and dribbles, said meteorologist Diana Henderson with the National Weather Service.

Showers are expected in the North Bay through Thursday night.
