It’s time to ready those rain boots and umbrellas because wet weather is returning to Southern California starting this weekend.
The first in a pair of storms to hit the Southland is expected to arrive Saturday, dropping temperatures into the low to mid-60s and bringing a chance of showers across the region through Sunday. Precipitation is expected to be light, with totals less than a tenth of an inch, said Kristen Stewart, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.
“That’s really just the precursor to the main event next week,” she said.
On Monday, a moisture-rich atmospheric river — fed by a plume of subtropical water vapor at the lower and middle levels of the atmosphere — is expected to bring widespread rain to the area. The strongest rain is expected Tuesday.
First significant rainfall of the year expected with storm Monday-Wednesday. Preliminary rainfall estimates are 1-3 inches, with locally higher amounts possible. #LArain #LAWeather #cawx #Socal pic.twitter.com/fqEFyFRD2w
