Rain returns to Southern California

December 25, 2010 |  7:35 pm

Rain again moved into Southern California on Saturday evening, beginning about 5:30 in Ventura County and traveling to Los Angeles a couple of hours later, starting in the Santa Monica mountains and moving east.

But it won’t be the deluge the area experienced earlier in the week.

“It will be a quick-moving trough,” said Curt Kaplan, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

The rain is expected to last up to five hours, with periods of heavy rain. Half an inch of rain is expected along the coast and from an inch and a half to 2 inches in the mountains, he said.

Sunday will be dry and partly cloudy and will get nicer toward the end of the day. The next rainfall is expected Tuesday night leading into Wednesday.
