We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Here it comes: rainy season is a little early. So drive carefully especially if you're up in the hills and just remember the sun will come out tomorrow (or maybe the next day).

Today's storm could last for six hours straight and dump up to an inch of rain in Southern California. The National Weather Service is issuing a warning to drive carefully since this is the season's first big storm and the roads could be especially slick.

They also issued a special warning to hikers. As always, the weather is worse if you're up in the mountains. So watch out for massive temperature drops, gusty winds and the possibility of snow if you're above 7,000 feet. This rain storm could dump two inches in the mountains. The Los Angeles Fire Department has sandbags if you need them.

Scattered rain and thunder showers could continue into tomorrow. Then the weather is expected to lighten up a bit. It's supposed to be almost 69 and sunny by Friday.
