There Goes The Sun: Wet Weather Predicted Through Wednesday
Get ready for rain, fellow Angelenos. According to the National Weather Service, we are in for wet weather between Monday and Wednesday.
Beginning Monday, meteorologists predict brief heavy downpours, possible thunderstorms on Tuesday, and the potential for waterspouts – which sounds totally benign, but waterspouts are actually tornadoes, or events that look like tornadoes, that form over water.
The overall rainfall is expected to hit 1-3 inches, with up to 4.5 inches in the San Gabriel Valley. The snow level is predicted to be 7,000 feet, with 12 inches or more blanketing elevations of over 8,000 feet.
Caltrans shared a list of driving tips, including checking the forecast in advance and carrying things like water and a phone charger.
This is the second big storm of the season. The first hit in mid-January and delivered between a ¼ and ¾ inch of rain.
