An atmospheric river storm system brought much-needed rain to drought-stricken California on Sunday and Monday, including record amounts in Sacramento and San Francisco, according to the National Weather Service.

Downtown Sacramento received 5.44 inches of precipitation, the most ever recorded in a 24-hour period there. The amount bests the city’s old record of 5.28 inches, which dates back to 1880, NWS reported.

Meanwhile, downtown San Francisco saw 4.02 inches of precipitation, making it the city’s rainiest day ever recorded in the month of October, the weather service said. The total shatters the city’s previous October record of 2.48 inches set on Oct. 13, 2009.
