Southern California can expect clouds, chilly conditions and a chance of rain this week as a "cool and unsettled weather pattern" settles on the region, the National Weather Service said.

Tuesday began with low clouds, fog and drizzle, with conditions expected to intensify after midnight, when a 20% chance of rain is predicted across the region, said weather specialist Stuart Seto with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

The possibility for showers continues Wednesday and Thursday, jumping to a 50% chance Thursday night, Seto said. Forecasters expect more rain Friday, with a slight chance of thunderstorms.

Temperatures should hover in the lower 60s -- Tuesday's predicted high was 63 degrees for downtown Los Angeles -- and dip into the 50s Friday, Seto said. Overnight temperatures could drop as low as 45 degrees over the weekend.

"Temperatures are going to be very chilly," Seto said.
