STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — It’s a soggy day across Southern California.
The light showers started falling overnight. We can expect more of the same over the next 48 hours as this upper level low slowly drifts through the region.
The low will move over the Channel Islands through the day today and then shift inland by tonight and tomorrow. There is enough lift in the atmosphere to pull out some isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, so be on the look out for lightning and listen for thunder.
Rainfall totals will mainly be on the light side. Certainly less than .50″ for mostly everywhere, and in many cases less than .25″.
As you get higher up in elevation, its a slightly different story. We will see some higher rain totals. Snowfall will be decent above 5000′. So this is good for the resorts.
The low will move east tomorrow and this will eventually turn into a Wet Santa Ana event. That just means the moisture will be pulling from east to west as opposed to our normal west to east movement.
Interior sections may get more wet and active than the coastal sections. We could even see some lower snow levels in the Antelope Valley because of this action.
There is a winter weather advisory for LA and Ventura counties and a Winter Storm Warning for San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
