After six weeks of dry weather, a bit of rain is finally coming our way this week.

On Monday and early Tuesday morning, L.A. saw cloudy skies, temperatures in the 60s and light showers bringing a tenth of an inch of rain.

The weather cleared out Wednesday, but another round of wet and cooler weather landed on Thursday.

The main light rain band is working its way down the coast, currently centered over northern Santa Barbara County. The light rain band should be over Ventura County around 11 a.m., and over Los Angeles County around 1 p.m.

Going into the weekend, Southern California will dry up and the days will stay cool. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s, which is normal for this time of year.

David Sweet, meteorologist at the National Weather Service says they're also monitoring conditions to see if a stronger storm comes our way at the beginning of next week.

If you're driving, remain cautious any time it rains and remember to turn on your headlights and windshield wipers.

“If roads are wet, just slow down and allow extra time to get to your destination,” Sweet said.
