Drought-stricken California is expected to get at least a trickle of rain and cooler temperatures over the next few days as a storm moves into the region from the Gulf of Alaska.

The National Weather Service said showers could begin as early as Saturday afternoon in parts of Northern California, including San Francisco, and reach the Los Angeles area on Tuesday.

Snow levels in Southern California could drop to 5,000 feet or lower, bringing a last blush of winter to area mountain resorts.

Los Angeles County is expected to get anywhere from a quarter to half an inch of rain before the weather front moves out of the area Wednesday morning.
