Rain snarls morning commute; second storm on its way

The first of two storms swept across Southern California in the early morning hours Wednesday, bringing rain, wind and light snow to lower elevations and snarling traffic.

Rain started falling in Ventura about 2 a.m., according to Bonnie Bartling, a spokesperson for National Weather Service.

The fast-moving storm is expected to bring half an inch to an inch of rain to the Los Angeles basin before clearing by noon. With temperatures in the mid-30s, Big Bear Mountain Resorts in Big Bear reports a light dusting of snow.

Cooler temperatures with clearing skies are expected later today with the lows tonight in the 50s.

A second storm is expected to arrive in the Southland on Thursday night with a 60% chance of rain. There is a 90% chance of rain Friday.

This storm is not expected to bring as much rain, says Bartling, and the forecast for the weekend is sunny with temperatures in the mid-60s during the day and the low 50s at night.
