A Hefty Helping Of Rain Is Heading LA’s Way This Week
Los Angeles could see up to two inches of rain later this week. But good news, everyone, things are expected to be nice and chilly in the meantime.
How cold will it get? Temperatures are expected to get as low as the upper 30s and lower 40s in the San Gabriel and San Fernando valleys. A cold weather alert is in effect for some local mountains and deserts; for Lancaster, it will remain in effect, Monday through Thursday, for Santa Clarita, Tuesday through Wednesday, and all week up on Mt. Wilson.
How much rain? National Weather Service Meteorologist Todd Hall told LAist that a “fairly significant storm system” is headed for L.A. Thursday and Friday. “So [there’s] potential for one to two inches of rainfall across Los Angeles, the Los Angeles basin, and up to four inches up in the San Gabriel mountain area," he said.
Okay, but what are the odds? L.A.’s chance of precipitation later this week is 78%, according to NWS Los Angeles.
