Rain, Rain Won't Go Away
If you haven't already left your house this morning you might want to grab an umbrella. That's because the bulk of this week's rain storm is expected to fall over L.A. today.
The National Weather Service says anywhere from one to one-and-a-half inches is expected in most areas — which is less than what was projected yesterday.
Meteorologist Joe Sirard also told us there's a decent chance of thunderstorms:
"Especially this afternoon/early this evening. One of the things to keep in mind with any lightning and thunder is that you need to protect yourselves and stay indoors, stay in your car, that sort of thing. If you hear thunder, that means the thunderstorm is close enough to where you can be struck by lightning."

Some strong southeast wind gusts are also possible. Showers could linger through the end of the week, with some brief dry periods.
And come Sunday, another storm is on the horizon.
