Rainstorm headed to Southern California
A rainstorm is expected to reach Southern California by midday Friday, bringing up to 2 inches in coastal and valley areas and up to 4 inches in the foothills and mountains, according to the National Weather Service.
Although there is a slight chance of rain Thursday night, the bulk should fall Friday and continue through Saturday, said Jamie Meier, a weather service meteorologist.
The Friday morning commute should be dry “but by the time they go home, driving will be a mess,” Meier said. “Mountain driving is not going to be fun tomorrow.”
Mountain resort areas can expect up to a foot of snow with levels at about 7,000 feet Friday, dropping to 4,500 feet Saturday. Snow is not expected to have a significant effect on the Grapevine on Interstate 5, Meier said.
“It’s very well-timed for the weekend,” she said of the snow. “Sunday should be beautiful.”
