LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — After a week of record-setting heat and gusty, destructive winds, Southern California could finally see some much-needed rain.

Two systems are headed for the region, the first forecast to hit Southern California Friday. Temperatures are expected to drop as much as 30 to 40 degrees this weekend, and forecasters believe storm set to arrive late Friday into Saturday will bring light showers and snow as low as the 4,000 feet.

The second, bigger storm is on track to arrive late Sunday into Monday, bringing much colder temperatures, more rain and heavy snow as low as 3,000 feet. KCAL 9’s Olga Ospina says local mountains could see a foot or two of snow.

And that won’t be the end of it – rain could linger into Tuesday and Wednesday.
