Is it raining where you are? It will be. Rain returns to L.A. for another shpritzing of our already soaked landscape. According to the National Weather Service the high today will near 57 degrees and the chance of precipitation is 80%.

Showers are expected to continue tonight with a chilly low of 45 and winds at 5 mph. More wetness on Monday, likely before 10am, but cloudy throughout the day with a high near 57 and calm winds. Chance of precipitation is 60% during the day, 20% at night. Tuesday should be back to normies with partly sunny skies and a warmer 62 degrees.

UPDATE: Rain, wind gusts and snow forced a CHP closure of northbound and southbound lanes of the Grapevine around 1 p.m. Sunday, reports KTLA. "Officials said snow, propelled by 90 mph winds, made driving conditions too dangerous," and traffic is currently being diverted in Castaic at Parker Road, and at the Kern county line. Snow levels could drop to 2,000 feet, and the NWS issued a winter storm warning in local mountains and the Antelope Valley until 6 p.m. Monday.
