Rain is expected in Southern California this week as forecasts show the storm heading toward the West Coast
Los Angeles (KABC) — A large storm system is heading toward the West Coast and is expected to bring some rain to Southern California this week.
A large area of low pressure will make its way from the Pacific Ocean into Northern California on Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Wednesday, NorCal will feel the brunt of the storm system. For Southern California, that will translate to light, intermittent rain Wednesday morning. Most rain will be very light, with a few pockets of moderate rain in some areas.
More moderate rain cells will appear later Wednesday morning for parts of SoCal, but they will not be widespread. Light, lingering rain is possible through the early evening in most areas, while the San Diego area may see heavier rain bands.
The Southland region may see light and scattered rain activity from Thursday into Saturday, and by Sunday morning, scattered showers will ease further.
Current forecast models do not indicate any heavy rainfall from this system. Wednesday through Sunday, most areas could see approximately 1-2 inches of total precipitation from this system.
Meanwhile, conditions are expected to be sunny across much of Southern California on Tuesday.
In Los Angeles and Orange County, the sky will be partly cloudy, with the temperature rising to 79 degrees. The lowest would be 54
Sunshine will reach the valleys and the Inland Empire, where the high will be 80 degrees. The low temperature will be 48 degrees.
On the beaches, morning fog will give way to sunny skies and a temperature rise to 72 degrees. The lowest would be 53
Similar conditions are expected in the mountains, where high temperatures reach 60 degrees. The level will drop to 27.
The desert areas will also be sunny, with the maximum temperature reaching 71 degrees and the minimum temperature reaching 32 degrees.
