Had enough of the rain? If so, this isn't going to be your week. The minor downpour that we're currently expecting on Monday is expected to continue into the afternoon, at which point it shifts to shower conditions, meaning that the rain will be scattered and intermittent.

We can also expect two more opportunities for rain in the upcoming days. As Stuart Seto, our trusty weather specialist at the National Weather Service, tells us, there's a 40% chance of rain arriving during the wee hours of Tuesday. It's only expected to generate about a quarter inch to a half inch of rain in the L.A. County, so it won't be a deluge. This will continue into early Wednesday.

There'll be a stronger certainty of rain on Friday, with forecasts predicting a 70% chance of rain coming during the early hours. Again, this will bring about a quarter inch to a half inch of rain, though the foothill regions could expect a little more.

If you're not a fan of the wetness, there's light at the end of the tunnel, as the skies are expected to clear up on Saturday. We'll even see a warming trend as temperatures spike to about 73 for the downtown area (normally, it's about 68 degrees this time of the year).

Looking at the larger picture, could we expect a rainy rest of the winter? The trend may seem to indicate as such, but Seto says it's all up in the air. "At this point, there are equal chances. It can go above or below for the next three months," said Seto.

Anyway, here's Led Zeppelin singing "The Rain Song":
