Showers roll into Southern California; storms, hail possible

Showers moved into Southern California early Friday morning, with the potential for thunderstorms and even hail later in the day.

The rain was light and was expected to end by 9 a.m. said meteorologist Dave Bruno of the National Weather Service.

But forecasters said there is a 50% to 60% chance that a second storm will arrive from the north by 11 a.m. and stretch throughout the afternoon.  

Bruno said the afternoon showers could bring thunderstorms and even hail.   

"We could have snow in the Grapevine later this evening," he said. "It's conceivable that nothing could fall, but the most likely thing is about one inch. Hopefully, it won't stick to the ground.”

Bruno said the rain should end by 9 p.m.
