LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California’s Black Friday has become shades of gray, and dripping wet.
Storm clouds pushing in from the ocean have brought bands of rain across the region, despite expectations that a low-pressure system off the coast would bring only sprinkles and a slight chance of showers.
Bargain-hunting shoppers have had to sprint from awning to awning to avoid getting soaked.
The National Weather Service says the showers will decrease as the low moves away, and high pressure and offshore flow will bring warmer weather on the weekend.
Forecasters say another low pressure system will bring the possibility of showers Tuesday through Thursday.
