Update: Rain expected to hit SCV over weekend

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

The rain dried up for a few hours this afternoon, but rain and possibly a thunderstorm are expected to hit the SCV tonight, according to a Weather Service forecast log.

The log gives an 80 percent chance of precipitation Saturday night before 10 p.m.

A flood advisory was issued for Los Angeles County Saturday afternoon which was in effect until 5 p.m.

The advisory was specifically for burn areas.

“It’s a cold front that is coming through, it will have a couple different punches,” a spokeperson with the National Weather Service told The Signal Saturday afternoon.

“Most of the rain will be today and a little bit tomorrow.”

Wind speeds are expected to be around 15 miles per hour with gusts reaching as high as 25 miles per hour on Saturday.

The Weather service says Saturday’s low will be 46 degrees.

There is a 50 percent chance of showers on Sunday, mainly before 10 a.m.

“Rain totals are a quarter to three quarters of an inch over the two days, lesser amounts of rain on Sunday,” the Weather Service said.

Weather officials also say snow could be in the forecast for the Grapevine area this weekend.

The California Highway Patrol says the addition of snow could hamper an already heavy holiday traffic flow through the Grapevine this weekend.

“Snow usually causes icy roads and slicker roadways,”said CHP Sargent Bill Ward.

“Drivers typically don’t slow down and create their own hazards.”

Ward advises holiday travelers to leave early and drive slow.
