A new rainstorm is scheduled to move into Southern California on Sunday, bringing light showers and a chance of thunderstorms.

The rain is expected to hit later this morning and into the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. The rain will give way to partly cloudy skies by Monday morning.

The snow level could drop to as low as 4,000 feet, and that could cause traffic problems on some mountain roads and along passes.

Overall, the storm should not drop a large amount of rain. The NWS forecast as much as a quarter-inch in the L.A. Basin.
