STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — There are low clouds and patchy fog Friday morning. There are also some gusty winds in the mountains, so be careful below the passes and canyons.

As far as rainfall goes, it’s going to be sporadic over the course of a few days. It looks like Orange County and the Inland Empire will get the higher totals on this event; however, don’t expect quite as much rain as last weekend.
It all depends on the path of this low — if it hangs out over the water there may be a little more moisture.
Rainfall totals look like they will be in the ballpark of .10 to .50 for the 48-hour period. Foothills will get higher numbers closer to 1.00 inch.READ MORE: Butler Scores 26 points, Heat Hold Off Late Clippers Rally For 121-114 Victory
Snow levels will be quite low, down to 4,000 feet and maybe even lower in some localized spots. That means the 5, 15 and 14 freeways all could have issues by Sunday morning once the colder air arrives.
The second wave of energy we thought might move through on Tuesday looks like a no-show, so this really is an event that will last from tonight through early Monday.
This does look like an unstable system so thunderstorms are possible and where a thunderstorm pops up, we could see some heavy rainfall rates and localized flooding.

In summary, the best chance for everyone to get at least some light showers will be Sunday afternoon. Beyond that, it’s going to be widely scattered through the weekend.
