After a short break from last week's storms, the Los Angeles region tomorrow could be soaked in the first of two weekend storms expected to quench some of the regions' thirst. "We're looking at two back-to-back systems," explained Meteorologist Eric Boldt at the National Weather Service. "One is coming in Friday afternoon or evening to the Los Angeles area and will go into Saturday morning." That storm could bring an inch or more and then on Sunday, a larger storm is expected to hit. "It will probably be double the amount of rainfall," Boldt said. As for snow levels, the first storm will bring snow up to the 3,500 foot elevation level. The second storm could bring one to three feet of snow to 5,000 feet.
