Brief storm to hit Southern California this week, with sunny skies forecasted after

Did you put the umbrellas and raincoats away after the latest Southern California storm? Forecasters say you might need to take them out again.

A brief, relatively mild cold storm system will move through the region beginning Tuesday, March 28, bringing rain to most areas and snow to higher-elevation mountain communities, with conditions drying up by the weekend.

“It’s a nice day today, it’ll be a nice day tomorrow, but then cooler weather is coming in,” said National Weather Service forecaster Adam Roser. “It looks like we’ll get some more rain and mountain snow.”

Rain will likely start late Tuesday night. Most areas can expect between 0.5 inches and 1 inch of rain, with mountain communities receiving the higher numbers. Snow is expected above 3,000 feet in elevation between Wednesday and Thursday, with areas above 5,000 to 6,000 feet receiving between 5 and 10 inches.

Thunderstorms and waterspouts are possible Wednesday night, with some gusty winds predicted for most of the region as well. This system will also bring lower temperatures, with most areas not breaking the 60s on Thursday.

The storm will have mostly dissipated by late Thursday, although some rain is possible. The weekend will be sunny, dry, and cool.
