Okay, seriously: This weather calls for "WTF?!" First we got word it was going to be sunny, hot, and windy for Thanksgiving (it was) with lots of ash stirred up from the recent Station Fire. Now the National Weather Service has issued a storm warning for the Los Angeles area, and this incoming "cold pacific storm may bring showers and mountain snow tonight into Saturday," reports KPCC. We could get some heavy showers, and maybe even thunderstorms and small hail.

The rain will hit late today and tonight in Santa Barbara and San Luis Opispo counties then move to Ventura and LA Counties overnight. Snow levels will come down to 3,500-4,000 feet. By the end of the weekend into Monday, though, we'll be back to dry air and fire weather. Of course!
