million in 2012. and two people split 636 million dollars in 2013 and one winning ticket in 2013 winning $590 million. the odds of winning the jackpot were slim but that didn't stop us from trying. coming up later, the new research from stanford into our brains and why some of us are wired and more prone to gamble. that's just ahead. drying out a bit? it won't last. we barely had enough time to dry out between rainstorms and three more storms are expected in the next five days. jeff ranieri is tracking the time line. when will we need the umbrellas again? >> by tomorrow. the next two storms are visible on the pacific satellite loop. right now the cold front that would produce the moderate rainfall is 595 miles off shore.
