Shake off your umbrellas -- a winter storm warning is in effect for parts of SoCal starting at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow and ending at 10:00 p.m. Tuesday.

The National Weather Service reports that a storm system is expected to hit the area tonight, and that by Tuesday, L.A. mountain ranges above 5,000 feet could see between ten and 15 inches of snow.

Near the coast, thunderstorm warnings are in effect, and heavy rain is expected to hit L.A. County and Ventura throughout tonight and well into tomorrow. The National Weather Service estimates that we'll see between 3/4 and one and 3/4 inches of rain.

This is not good news for those areas that are still recovering from Windpocalypse, reports NBC Los Angeles. Some cities are still trying to clean up felled trees and branches, and total damage from the storm was estimated to be around $75 million.
