STUDIO CITY (KCAL9) — The late season storm is upon us, and it looks like this will be a nice hit for this late in the season.
Rainfall totals could exceed a half of an inch to .75 inches for most areas by tomorrow night.
This is a two wave system. The first wave will arrive this afternoon, with rain that will be mostly light and scattered through the area. Snow levels will be up at 6,000 feet to start, but will lower as we make our way into Friday.
The second wave will be to the south, which will limit some of the more intense rainfall.
Look for the heaviest hits before sunrise lingering into the morning commute. Then, with an unstable environment, it will be showery through Friday. Snow accumulation will be about six inches above 6,000 feet.
With the lowering snow levels and wind, there is a winter weather advisory along with the potential for brief thunderstorms.
Those systems could bring heavy downpours. If you live in a recent burn area, you should be prepared for debris flows.
We should be drying up for the weekend.
