Storm headed to Southern California

Isolated showers will give way to a storm that is expected to hit Southern California late Friday night, the National Weather Service is reporting.

Gusty southerly winds will accompany the storm, said meteorologist Curt Kaplan.  

“It’s a very frustrating forecast,” Kaplan said. “The upper low is off the coast, and it will move down, but we won’t get as much rain as we probably should. The heaviest rain we see will be [Friday night] into Saturday morning.”  

The showers are expected to continue throughout Saturday, generating up to 3/4 inch of rain. The region should be clear by Sunday, Kaplan said.  

The weather service is also warning beachgoers about possible rip currents across area beaches, and a slight chance of thunderstorms along the coast.   

As the storm approaches, Kaplan said temperatures Friday will remain in the mid-60s to lower 70s.
