Late Spring Storm Brings Heavy Rain, Hail and Gusty Winds to SoCal; Flood Advisory Issued in L.A. County

The second day of a Spring storm brought heavy rains, hail and gusty winds to Southern California Sunday.

Rain hit the area late Saturday and into Sunday, but had tapered off by mid-morning Sunday.

Showers returned Sunday afternoon, along with hail. The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory in Los Angeles County until 7 p.m. Sunday. Officials said heavy rainfall in the Santa Clarita area might cause minor debris flow where the Sand Fire raged last summer.

Viewer videos showed hail in West Covina, Chino Hills and outside the MTV Video Music Awards at the Shrine Auditorium.

The red carpet portion before the award show was eventually shut down, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Los Angeles Dodgers game against the San Diego Padres was postponed Sunday due to showers in San Diego.

About 4 p.m. the weather service reported frequent lighting, gusty winds and flooding over the Los Angeles Basin.

About a quarter of an inch of rain is expected in Los Angeles County, though more is forecasted in local mountains, officials said.

Snow levels will be around 5,000 to 6,000 feet.

Showers and possible thunderstorms, along with cool conditions are expected to linger into Monday, but warmer temperatures are forecasted by midweek.
