Series of storms may sprinkle Southern California with light rain

A series of light storms will move into Southern California on Tuesday, bringing light rain and a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms.

The storms will probably sprinkle only about 1/10 of an inch of rain over the Los Angeles area Tuesday, but more substantial rain could fall by Wednesday, according to forecasters at the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

A larger, colder storm system is expected to bring heavier rain and mountain snow to Southern California over the weekend.

A high surf advisory will be in effect for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties from 1 p.m. Tuesday to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Authorities are warning of strong rip currents on the coast.
