Two storms are expected to make their way into Southern California this week, bringing rain, wind and snow, forecasters said Tuesday.

The first storm system is expected to reach the Central Coast by Tuesday afternoon, likely bringing scattered showers throughout the night and into Wednesday as it works its way south into the Los Angeles area, according to a National Weather Service advisory.

Forecasters expect between 0.33 and 1 inch of rain in the valleys and coastal region and between three-quarters to 1 1/2 inches in the mountains.

Snow is expected at elevations between 5,500 and 6,000 feet Tuesday night in the region.

A second storm is expected to make its way into Ventura and Los Angeles counties Thursday night, with a chance of showers from Thursday into the weekend, according to the advisory.

The storms will likely bring snow at elevations between 4,000 and 5,000 feet with gusty wins.
