Are you wearing pants and long sleeves today? Is your hair a little bit frizzy? Have little drops of water been clouding your glasses all morning? If so, you might have noticed L.A. is experiencing a certain special type of weather phenomenon: rain.

That's right Angelenos, it's raining. Don your umbrella hat and look toward October, because it feels like fall baby!

According to the National Weather Service, rainfall isn't a reliable September occurrence. It's not unusual, per se, but there's also no June Gloom for September rain. Perhaps we can invent something together—September Raincloud Gesture? Okay, moving on.

The NWS told LAist it expects the showers today to gradually diminish this late afternoon, and may end by the evening. It will possibly linger across the foothills of the mountain ranges and maybe in the Antelope Valley. And no, there isn't more rain in the forecast at this point.

The rain has led to a cooling of temperatures in the L.A. area, and they should remain relatively low through Saturday, according to the L.A. Times. The weather will heat up again starting Sunday, crawling up into the high 80s and low 90s, particularly in the inland valleys.
