Meteorologist Scott Sukup said the region should remain dry for a few days until the first storm rolls in Wednesday night, delivering between a quarter of an inch and three-quarters of an inch of rainfall.

The second storm, which is expected to be stronger, is expected to begin Thursday night and last through Friday, and the third could arrive Sunday and continue through Monday, Sukup said. Each could shower the region with up to an inch and a half of rainfall.

Mountain and foothill areas are likely to get the heaviest rainfall, with lighter amounts in the desert and the Antelope Valley.
