The weather has been absolutely beautiful this week. Too bad the weekend is not expected to be the same. "It looks to be a good one coming through," said Bill Hoffer, a National Weather Service spokesperson, noting that a few storm cells are headed our way, beginning tomorrow and possibly lasting through next Wednesday.

Tomorrow morning, Angelenos could be waking up to some drizzle, with a 20% chance of rain in the afternoon and a 70% chance of rain at night. It's likely there will be thunderstorms after midnight. By Saturday, there's a 40% chance of rain during the day and 20% at night. With a new cell expected to move in, Sunday's chances jump up to 50% during the day and 70% at night. Lower chances are predicted for Monday through Wednesday.

A quarter to three-quarters of an inch are expected to fall in the Los Angles area between Friday and Saturday. "We don't look at rainfall rates to be problematic as far as the burn areas go," noted Hoffer. Snow levels should reach 4,500 to 5,000 feet Friday and Saturday.
