A light rain began falling across Southern California on Wednesday morning, bringing with it the usual complaints of bad driving.

National Weather Service meteorologist Curt Kaplan said local residents should expect a 20% chance of rain for much of the region, along with a stray thunderstorm or two.

"We'll get a few sprinkles," he said.

Many people began snapping pictures of raindrops and joking about the drizzle.

"Couple drops of rain and people freak out, gotta love LA," tweeted Juan.
