The storm that soaked Southern California yesterday brought soggy hillsides down in some areas, and more rain is on the way today. The mud came sliding down in two separate locations in Sylmar last night, and a third mudslide was reported in Sierra Madre.
A flash flood watch has been issue for all the recent burn areas of Los Angeles County, including Catalina until 6 p.m. today. The heavy rains due to pelt us again may produce thunderstorms and precarious conditions for residents of areas where the hills can't hold all the moisture this second wave of rain and thunderstorms is expected to produce. The showers today will be more scattered as opposed to steady and heavy as they fell yesterday and overnight. Snow levels are down around 4,000 feet in local mountains.
