A storm moving into California from the Pacific Northwest will bring rain to the Southland Thursday and Friday.
“We’re expecting to see much more cloud cover rolling throughout Southern California as the storm system makes its move on our state,” said KTLA weather anchor Kaj Goldberg.
Rainfall estimates have been slashed by the National Weather Service with the valleys and coastal areas now expected to receive .5 to 1” of precipitation. Mountain locations could see 1 to 2 inches of rain.
Snow levels will start at 7,000 feet and eventually drop to around 6,000 feet, according to the National Weather Service.
“Major mountain passes are unlikely to see snow,” NWS said. “However, there will likely be winter weather travel conditions in the higher mountains during this time. In addition, due to heavier rain likely in the mountains and foothills, there will be a chance of minor flash flooding and debris flows in recent burn areas.”
Commuters were urged to allow extra time before hitting the roads Thursday and Friday.
Gusty south winds of up to 25 to 45 mph are expected in most areas Thursday and Friday.
Wind advisories have been issued for parts of Los Angeles and Ventura counties through Friday morning.
