Posted December 15, 2009, 8:16 AM.

A series of fast-moving fronts drenched the inland valleys over the weekend, especially Saturday, causing few problems but leaving between a half and two inches of rain.

The first storm entered the region Friday morning, and light rain fell in the morning and evening.

Saturday was characterized by by two fronts with virtually no break between them. Rain was light in the morning, then heavy in the afternoon and evening.

Showers lingered into Sunday and were mostly done by noon.
