STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The marine layer has thickened up this morning…so patchy drizzle can be expected throughout the area.
As the day progresses, the marine layer will clear, but will be replaced by cumulus cloud development ahead of an approaching trough and cold front. The showers are expected to arrive later this evening.
There will be a chance for wet weather through late Friday night and early Saturday morning. While there is not a lot of moisture to work with on this system…we are expected variable showers throughout the area. Totals should range between .10″ to .25″.
This storm will be scattered and showery…which means it’s going to be hard to pin point where the rain will be consistent and where it will be relatively non-existent. It’s best to expect that most of the LA Basin and our coastal valleys (San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys) will get wet at some point over the next 24 hours.
The other big element of this system will be the cold air in place. Snow levels should drop down to 3000′ which would put it on the Grapevine…and there could be some accumulation. We will dry out for Saturday and warm up a bit on Sunday.
