rain-tree-bgLOS ANGELES (KTLA) — The last in a series of storms was moving across the Southland Monday morning, with clearing expected by the afternoon.

According to the National Weather Service, the storm will produce scattered showers over Ventura and Los Angeles counties

The heaviest rain was expected in the foothills of the San Gabriel Valley, the NWS said.

Skies will begin to clear Monday afternoon. Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies and near-normal temperatures are on tap from Tuesday into the weekend.

The unsettled weather brought periods of rain over the weekend, as well as high surf along much of the coast.

Dangerously high surf struck west-facing beaches Saturday between Central California and Orange County, prompting the NWS to issue a coastal hazard warning.

A large swell was causing waves as large as 15 feet to pound beaches in some areas, forecasters said.

The hardest-hit beaches were those in the vicinity of Ventura Harbor and in southern Los Angeles County.

“Surf and swell conditions will be hazardous to anyone entering the water” through Sunday, the weather service advisory warned.

A high surf advisory remains in effect through mid-morning Monday for west-facing beaches in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties.

There’s a high risk of rip currents through Monday afternoon for the beaches of southern Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties.
