Where's the Rain? Here Are The Times It's Expected To Reach Your Area
A big rain storm is slowly making its way down from San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties, bound for L.A.
National Weather Service Meteorologist David Sweet says precipitation could arrive as early as this evening, bringing steady rainfall for much of Friday with a chance of thunderstorms.
"We're expecting somewhere between one to two inches of rain in the lowlands and about two to four inches in the mountains and in the foothills."
So where is the rain and when will it get here? NWS is now warning it's been falling at as much as one inch per hour:
Radar update: The line of heavier rainfall that's been expected to make its way across the area is moving through SBA Co. Has produced up to around an inch per hour rates so far. Drivers should use extra caution with low visibility and ponding on the roadways. #CAwx #LArain pic.twitter.com/WuPyEb4QSo— NWS Los Angeles (@NWSLosAngeles) January 28, 2021

Other things to note:
- A flash flood watch goes into effect tonight for areas of Orange County and the Inland Empire.

Missing sunny skies? They should return Saturday along with at least slightly warmer temperatures.
Be careful out there.
