If you're planning on lining up for the 'Wizarding World Of Harry Potter' at Universal this weekend, you might want to break out your Hogwarts poncho to stay dry. Showers and possible thunderstorms are expected to arrive in Southern California today and continue until Sunday with two storm systems, reports KPCC. According to the National Weather Service, the first bout is expected to arrive this morning with a slight chance of showers that will increase into the afternoon and evening. Round two should arrive on Friday and is expected to be more substantial with moderate to heavy rainfall and potential thunderstorms peaking Saturday, which could cause flooding in some areas. The wet weather should taper off by Sunday.

Encouragingly for Angels fans, meteorologists don't think the rainfall will put a damper on the team's games against the Texas Rangers at Angel Stadium over this weekend.

Despite a strong El Niño, warming waters and expectations of dramatic increases in rainfall, L.A. has only seen half the normal rainfall this season, according to KPCC.
