It's Raining In SoCal And Some OC Communities Are Under Evacuation Orders. Here's What You Need To Know
Southern California is getting some long-awaited rain and some areas of Orange County are under evacuation orders.
National Weather Service meteorologist Kristan Lund says most of it should start falling around the end of rush hour.
"The first band is coming through like this morning, and it will be heavier, but the second band is going to come through and it will be more showery, but there is like a good thunderstorm potential for that," Lund said. "There's a potential to see thunderstorms in terms of lightning, thunder, small hail — and there can be brief downpours during those."

In Orange County, mandatory evacuation orders have been issued for some sections of the Bond Fire burn scar area in Silverado Canyon, Williams Canyon, and Modjeska due to possible debris flows.
Most areas of L.A. County should get an inch to an inch-and-a-half of rain while the foothills could get up to three inches.
There's a winter storm warning for the mountains, except for the Santa Monica range. Forecasters expect 6 to 12 inches of snow at 6,000 feet and up to 18 inches above 7,500 feet.
Wind gusts could reach up to 60 miles per hour in the mountains and 40 to 50 mph in other areas.
But when will the wet weather leave us? For all areas, not until Tuesday at least, according to the National Weather Service.

The mountains will continue to see snow and rain throughout the evening. Travelers passing through the areas should expect traffic delays and slick roads.
By Tuesday, the rain should clear out in Los Angeles, paving the way for sunny skies and highs in the mid-sixties. Evening lows throughout the week are expected to stick around the 50s, but precipitation, at the moment, is largely free from the forecast, save for a slight chance of showers Thursday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
