Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Don't be fooled by this weekend's warm weather we experienced inland in the Los Angeles area...we are not headed straight to the summer heat just yet. You probably wised up and threw on a jacket or sweater this morning to ward off the damp chill, and thanks to a late season storm headed our way, you're going to want to tote your umbrella for the next few days, too.

The storm, which is on its way to SoCal, is expected to spread rain and gusty winds into the region on Wednesday, with showers possibly lingering until Thursday, says the National Weather Service. We could even see some thunderstorms.

This storm, however, isn't expected to bring much snow to our mountains--at least not at lower elevations. The snow level is expected to be around 8,000 feet Wednesday, and between 6,000 and 7,000 feet by Thursday morning.

The NWS put together this "weather story" to help illustrate what is coming for us:
