Drizzle could make for slick roadways in Southern California on Sunday

Southern Californians probably will wake up to damp conditions Sunday from overnight drizzle, but it shouldn’t raise concerns of debris flows in burn scar areas, weather forecasters said Saturday, May 15.

“It’s very unlikely to cause any of those kinds of problems,” said Meteorologist Philip Gonsalves of the National Weather Service’s San Diego office.

The drizzle was anticipated to start before midnight and continue into late Sunday morning thanks to a deep marine layer, expected to form across the region late Saturday night, meteorologists said.

Most areas won’t even see one-tenth of an inch and some areas in the Inland Empire may not see any moisture at all, Philip Gonsalves of the NWS San Diego office said.

But the small amount of moisture could make roadways slick and forecasters stressed caution for drivers in the morning.

“It could be enough time (since the previous rainfall) that there might be buildup on the roads,” Meteorologist Richard Thompson said.

The foothills of the San Gabriel and San Fernando mountain areas in Los Angeles County could see close to one-tenth of an inch, but most other areas in Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties were anticipated to be below that, forecasters said.

Temperatures across the four counties were anticipated in the low- to mid-60s, with lower temperatures at higher elevations.
