Temperatures are expected to fall Tuesday as an early-season storm lands in Southern California, the National Weather Service predicted.

A first storm system is expected to bring rain to the central coast Tuesday night, while a second storm system may bring widespread rainfall to Southern California by Wednesday with a possible four- to six-hour period of steady rainfall.

A chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms are expected through Thursday.

The Southland will see cooler-than-usual conditions for the season, with temperatures falling 15 to 30 degrees below seasonal norms.

Higher mountain elevations could see some early snowfall Wednesday night into Thursday, according to the weather service.

Mountains and deserts could experience wind gusts up to 50 mph Wednesday.
