FYI: We're In For Some Heavy Rain On Sunday Night Followed By A Beautiful Week
Short, sweet, and to the point. That's what Sunday night's rain will be for Southern California. According to the National Weather Service (NWS), Southern Californians can expect almost 100 percent chance of rain on Sunday evening into Monday morning.
While Saturday will be a typically lovely, seasonable day—sunny with a high of 73—Sunday will be cooler (66 degrees) and cloudy, potentially punctuated with a shower or two throughout the day. By 4 p.m., the chance of rain rockets up to "close to 100 percent", according to the Los Angeles Times. A large low-pressure system off the Pacific coast will move ashore into Sunday night, bringing with it up to an inch of rain for Southern California.
Most of the rain will happen while we're all asleep, between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. The NWS warns that the rain could be heavy at times, and that those who live in recent burn-areas should be cautious should mudslides occur.
By Monday morning, most of the rain should have passed, apart from an occasional shower throughout the commuting hours. Assuming the city doesn't wash into the ocean on Sunday night, Monday should be one of those stunningly crisp and clean 'after rain' days—partly cloudy with a high of 67—while the clouds roll off to the east. Full sunshine will return by Tuesday, and Angelenos can expect the remainder of next week to be sunny with daytime highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
To be smug, Sunday in Chicago will be sunny with a high of 39 degrees. New York will be cloudy with a high of 47.
