While Sunday offered a break—albeit a hot and muggy one—from yesterday's thunderstorm, meteorologists say more are on their way.

The National Weather Service says a second wave of storms from the remnants of Tropical Storm Dolores are already on their way, and will hit Los Angeles County as early this evening. Holy crap, it's going to rain again!

San Diego was already hit with the system, flooding parts of the county for the second day in a row, and a thunderstorm capable of 60 mph gusts of wind was just south of Riverside this afternoon. NWS says rain will hit the eastern portions of Los Angeles and Orange County by 5 p.m. What's left of Dolores is 350 miles south-southwest of Los Angeles and on a path into Santa Monica Bay.

"Although it looks nice outside, changes in the weather could happen quickly with heavy rainfall and local flooding in many areas," warned the National Weather Service. "This pattern of very juicy available moisture (means) showers and thundershowers could pop just about anywhere later today."
