A moisture-laden front from northern California is expected to reach the Los Angeles area early Sunday morning and produce steady rain throughout much of the day, according to National Weather Service.

Scattered showers are expected to begin between midnight and 4 a.m. Sunday, primarily in the San Gabriel Valley, San Gabriel Mountains and east Los Angeles County.

As the day progresses, all areas of the region should receive some rain, and snow flurries may occur in the mountains, said David Gomberg, a weather service meteorologist.

A tenth to a half inch of rain is expected for lower elevations while mountains could receive up to an inch of precipitation.
