Get out those umbrellas. The National Weather Service is predicting 3/4 of an inch to 1.5 inches of rain, which is expected to begin this afternoon. On south facing foothills, rain could even peak at 3 inches, which has L.A. County's Public Works closing some roads and warning residents near fire burn areas of possible "small isolated debris and mudflows possible" and streets flooded or blocked streets due to debris. However officials say "few, if any, structures may be endangered."

Areas affected in the county's warning include canyons and ridges above East Sierra Madre, La Canada Flintridge. La Crescenta, Glendale, Sunland/Tujunga Area, Angeles National Forest communities, Soledad Cyn/Acton Areas and Aliso Canyon, according to the latest Debris and Mudflow Forecast.

Snow levels are expected to drop between 5,000 and 6,000 feet with six to 12 inches of powder expected across the highest peaks.

On Monday, there is still a threat of showers, possibly thunderstorm activity, throughout the day. By Tuesday and through the rest of the week, expect a mix of clear skies and some clouds.
