We're in the middle of a one-two (and three) punch of storm systems, with the first one beginning on Wednesday, and the final one arriving on Sunday.

We're entering the grips of the second storm, which will likely dump one to one-and-a-half inches of rain on L.A. County on Friday evening. If you're attending the Women's March downtown on Saturday (over 70,000 have RSVPed on Facebook), you may be glad to hear that we can expect a brief break from the rain. There's only a 20% chance of intermittent showers for the morning on Saturday. After noon, however, that figure falls down to zero.

It will be a little chilly, however (at least by our standards). According to the National Weather Service, there'll be a daytime high of 62 degrees tomorrow, with morning lows of about 46. It may be a little windy, too. Currently, there's a wind advisory in effect. It's set to end on Saturday at 6 a.m., but NWS weather specialist Stuart Seto says that we may still see some minor gusts. What does it all mean for marchers on Saturday? "You'll want to be prepared. The streets may still be a little slick from the rain. But I'd focus more on the winds and temperature. So dress warm," said Seto.

The dry spell will only be momentary. On Saturday night, we'll see a slight uptick in the possibly for showers, and by Sunday there's a 100 % chance that we'll see a return of rain. This third and final storm is slated to be biggest one of the bunch. Forecasts say that we can expect one to three inches of rain across the county, with higher levels of rain in the mountain areas. The rain is expected to continue into Monday. The chance of showers, however, will drop down to 20 % for Tuesday, and the ensuing days (up till Friday at least) will be bone dry.
