KTLA weather: Front brings chill, a bit of rain

March 2, 2009 |  9:38 am

Showers160 A cold front is currently dropping into Southern California, ending the weekend's warm weather pattern.  This morning, skies are partly cloudy over Los Angeles, with increasing clouds and showers expected in the northern Southland.

The front will make its way into Los Angeles County by noon, and most of the shower activity will dissipate by mid-afternoon.   Rainfall amounts will be under a tenth of an inch, while little if any precipitation is forecast in the Inland Empire and in southern Orange County.

Daytime temperatures will drop by about 10 degrees from Sunday with highs mostly in the lower 70s. Because temperatures are on the warm side, only a light dusting of snow will fall in the northern mountain ranges above 7,000 feet.  Otherwise, expect scattered rain with breezy conditions.

Tuesday looks to be dry and partly cloudy. Late Tuesday into Wednesday, we have another chance of rain,as moisture rotates around the trough into Southern California.
