LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Southern California is in need of some rain, and Mother Nature certainly delivered today. A Pacific storm system brought on-and-off rain throughout the Southland today.

The slow-moving storm brought heavy showers at times. Authorities are bracing for the possibility of mud and debris flows near recent burn areas, rock falls on canyon roads, and freeway flooding. Thunderstorms could bring lightning to beach areas, and water spouts are possible over the ocean, according to the National Weather Service.

The city of Santa Ana is offering free sandbags to residents and businesses at its Corporate Yard, 215 S. Center St. in Santa Ana. In Burbank, Wildwood Canyon and Stough Nature Center hiking and recreation areas will be closed until further notice due to the rain and the potential for mud and debris flow.

Tuesday’s wet weather is just the beginning for this week. Scattered showers are expected through the weekend, when the region should see a break in the rain. But before that break, Southern California could get up to three inches of rain in the coastal areas and the valleys, and as much as five inches of rain in the mountain and foothill areas.
