A rare, unseasonably strong June storm sweeping over Northern and Central California could lead to a 20% chance of rain in Los Angeles on Sunday, the National Weather Service said.

The southern edge of the storm is expected to head east into Ventura County Saturday night into Sunday morning, dropping between 0.25 to 1 inches there. If the rain comes to Los Angeles County, less than 0.25 inches of rain is expected by Sunday night.

Up to 3 inches of rain was expected by Sunday night in Santa Barbara County.

The San Francisco Bay Area, meanwhile, was being hit with rain Saturday. By 6 a.m., downtown San Francisco had already seen half an inch of rain, breaking a record set for June 4 in 1934. More than an inch of rain has fallen in parts of Marin and Contra Costa counties.
