Hallelujah! We Could Get More Rain And Hail This Week
While we've had some sunny skies this week, it won't last for very long. A rainstorm is expected to make its way to SoCal this Thursday, bringing along with it some cold weather and the chance for hail, thunder and lightning.
Hopefully, the rain can water our parched earth a bit and give us some natural car washes. The L.A. Times reports that the storm will move into the Los Angeles area on Thursday, but we have a higher chance of getting rain and thunderstorms on Friday, just in time for the hellish Friday morning commute! There could be small hail that morning as well, which will make for a tricky drive. Be careful on the potentially slippery roads that day!
It'll be chilly as well, as the temperatures are expected to drop to the high 50s and 60s on Thursday and Friday. And May Gray will be making a comeback from last week: we can expect some dim days and gray skies on Wednesday and Thursday, the L.A. Daily News reports. The storm is expected to clear out by early Saturday.
This cold and rainy weather pattern is not rare, but a little surprising for May. Kathy Hoxsie, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard is even coining this "unseasonably cold storm system" as "Miracle May."
Bundle up and stay dry, Los Angeles!
