In sharp contrast to last week's hot spell, two storms will strike the Southland this week, threatening high winds and minor mud and debris flows down slopes denuded in wildfires, National Weather Service forecasters said today.
A disorganized disturbance is passing over California Sunday while a stronger system moves over the Pacific Northwest.
The early week systems will bring up to 3 inches in the North Bay with less than an inch expected in most parts of the San Francisco Bay Area. "Periods of gusty winds are also expected, which could pose dangers from falling trees and cross-winds on roadways", the statement said.
If you plan to travel through the mountains this week, be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions, with hazardous winter driving possible Wednesday night through Friday morning.
This system could be slower to move across the region, increasing the possibility of runoff and flooding with heavier, more widespread precipitation compared to the second system. Temperatures will remain slightly cooler, around 5-8 degrees below seasonal normals. As of today, rain is forecast in L.A. County on Tuesday and Wednesday, as well as Thursday in some communities, then again on Saturday.
