Los Angeles' drizzly, I-don't-remember-how-to-drive season came a little early this year.A fast-moving, chilly storm is sweeping through Southern California as we speak. It's expected to bring light rain, gusty winds, cool temperatures and possibly thunderstorms, according to City News Service. It's been a little drizzly this morning, but those rainstorms are forecasted to be more widespread in the afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.

It's not supposed to get too wet—just a quarter-inch of rain. But up in the San Gabriel Mountains, it could be more like a half-inch. If there are thunderstorms, it could get wetter. It's supposed to be in the 60s today in the Greater L.A. area, but up in the hills it could drop to the 50s or even 40s. If you're up in the mountains, you could see snow. The snow level is predicted to drop down to 5,500 feet this afternoon and as low as 4,500 feet in some spots.

The wind will be especially bad in the Antelope Vally where gusts could get up to 60 mph.

Be careful out there on the road.
