Light showers, cooler temperatures expected across Southland

Light showers will fall on swaths of Southern California on Sunday, with the cloud cover expected to bring cooler conditions.

A 40% chance of light rain is forecast, mostly in the southern parts of Los Angeles County and in Orange and San Diego counties, said David Sweet, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

But, he said, he's "not really expecting an awful lot of precipitation." The conditions in the region are so dry, he said, that most of the rainfall will evaporate before it hits the ground.

Along with the rain, though, comes cloud cover that will hold down temperatures that had risen into the 70s last week. On Sunday, highs in the lower-to-mid 60s can be expected throughout the region.
