Don't forget that umbrella on the way out the door today -- it's gonna rain (yes, that is an intentional Steve Reich reference). Right now, surfers should be enjoying the best swells of the week and skiers can look forward to a nice snowpack of "about 6 inches of snow at elevations of about 6,000 feet," according to the LA Times.

As always, with the good, comes the bad. Among the more strenuous commute and flash flood warnings are concerns of mudslides and debris flows where wildfires hit. An estimated 3-inches is expected through tomorrow, followed by a chilly weekend in the 50s.
