Series of storms bring rain and snow to Southern California


The rain is here. A series of storms are bearing down on Southern California Friday and will bring rain, snow and gusty winds to the region through the weekend.

While heavier showers are expected to remain mostly to our north, Los Angeles and Ventura counties will see between .25 and 1 inch of rain, with up to two inches possible at higher elevations, according to the National Weather Service.

San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties are forecast to see up to 3 inches of rain through Sunday evening, with even higher totals expected in the mountains.

The weather service is also warning of strong winds through the weekend, with gust between 25 and 45 mph as the fronts move through.

The widespread stormy weather will bring snow to our local resorts, with snow levels starting out around 7,000 feet before eventually dropping to about 6,000 feet.

The major mountain passes are expected to remain clear of snow through the weekend.

Drivers were urged to allow extra time for their commute Friday.

Light showers were falling in the West Hills area when a single-car crash occurred around midnight Thursday.

Drier conditions are expected to return to the region early next week.
