Ready for Fall? It's About to Get Cold and Rainy in L.A.
If you're one of the many SoCal residents smugly flaunting our warm fall weather to friends and family in other states, well, it's time to bundle up, batten down the hatches, and take our lumps. The National Weather Service is warning of early season storms taking aim at the region this week.
The rain could arrive in the Los Angeles area as early as Tuesday, as part of an initial storm system that is due later tonight in the Central Coast region. However, a second storm system brewing and heading our way will bring with it the potential for widespread rainfall to Southwest California Wednesday into Wednesday evening. That storm will include a period of heavy, steady rainfall that could last four to six hours. Bonus: The storm will create gusty winds in the mountains and deserts.
Brrr: Temps will be 15 to 30 degrees below seasonal normals this week when that second storm hits.
