Cold And Wet Weather May Harsh Your Mellow This Weekend
Thunderstorms and cooler temps are expected to hit Southern California starting tomorrow and may put a damper on your weekend plans. Beginning Thursday morning, Los Angeles and Ventura counties will likely see morning drizzle, clouds and fog with showers arriving later in the day, weather specialist Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service tells LAist. While the rainfall will be fairly light, the storm system is expected to continue through the weekend with the chance that the rainfall on Friday could be heavier than expected.
"Be careful on the wet roads," Seto advises anyone heading out for Cinco De Mayo celebrations. "And you'll probably want to bundle up more." Or just keep dancing, either way.

As the weekend progresses, we may hear rumbles of thunder and see heavier rainfall as well. Temperatures are also expected to drop to around 66 degrees in downtown L.A. and will stay cool into the middle of next week, so you might want to bring a sweater and make your mom proud.
Warmer temperatures and drier conditions are expected to return later next week, so all is not lost.
