Clouds are rolling in and dropping rain on the Southland this afternoon.

The culprit? A weakened Hurricane Hilary that's moving eastward toward the Southwest — which could certainly use the extra rain.

The National Weather Service's Bonnie Bartling told the Los Angeles Times this morning that those clouds weren't supposed to drop any rain until tonight. We got a short burst of rainfall this afternoon in West Hollywood and folks on Twitter are saying that there's thunder on the coast. So maybe Hilary is ahead of schedule?

For what it's worth, the weather service is still saying that there's a 20 percent of showers and thunderstorms through tonight and tomorrow morning.
