LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — A severe thunderstorm warning issued for parts of Los Angeles County has expired, but forecasters say showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected to continue into Wednesday.

Wet Weather Expected to Taper off By Wednesday Night, KNX 1070’s Jon Baird reports.

“We think areas like the Antelope Valley and the foothills will get the most precip today,” National Weather Service Meteorologist Curt Kaplan said. “But thunderstorms will be possible anywhere in Los Angeles County, just like yesterday.”

Some of the thunderstorms could be capable of producing brief heavy rain, gusty winds, small hail and frequent lightning, Kaplan added.

Rainfall amounts again will vary, but amounts of less than half an inch can be expected with up to one inch of rain possible in some upslope areas adjacent to the Antelope Valley. Snow levels in the mountains will generally be above ski resort elevations, Kaplan said.

Residents of foothill communities below the 250-square-mile Station Fire burn area and anyone living in or near other recent burn areas should remain vigilant.

Rain Not Falling at Rate to Warrant Evacuations Up In the Foothills, LA County Fire Inspector Matt Leveq Tells KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz.

“If a thunderstorm were to move across a recent burn area, there would be the slight possibility of short duration rainfall intensities exceeding the USGS criteria for mud and debris flows,” he said, adding that fast-moving storm motion across the region means that chances of debris flows will remain low.

“However, residents in the recent burn areas should continue to monitor the latest forecasts concerning this developing weather event,” Kaplan said.

To the south, Long Beach saw more than a half-inch of rainfall Tuesday, easily surpassing a 31-year-old record and heavy rains also fell in San Diego and Orange counties.

    Hey, Bruce Robert Montague, you sure seem to have a lot of time on your hands, perhaps you should consider becoming a more productive member of society and get a J.O.B. If you happen to be employed, maybe you should get to work instead of posting meaningless posts.
