LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — After a week of record-setting heat and gusty, destructive winds, Southern California could finally see some much-needed rain.
Are you ready to say goodbye (for now, at least) to the never ending heat? Well it's nearly time because today will be our last 70+ degree day for at least the next week, likely longer. We even have a couple chances of rain coming up! Why hello there winter! 🌧️☔🧣 #CAwx #SoCal pic.twitter.com/hHm672cBvH
