A low-pressure system brought some frightfully cooler temperatures to the Santa Clarita Valley this Halloweek.
On Halloween, low temperatures also brought winds between 5 to 10 miles per hour (mph) and a slight chance of showers and patchy drizzle throughout the day and night.
The cool and cloudy weather is expected to continue throughout the week with a chance of drizzle and rain hitting the area Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
“It’s going to stay cool and cloudy with high temperatures in the mid-60s and 70s and low temperatures in the upper-40s and lower-50s,” said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “There really is not much of a swing in temperatures.”
In Santa Clarita, the NWS expects rain to hit the valley Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday.
“The best chance [for rain] probably would be Sunday into Sunday night,” Sweet said.
Forecasts from the NWS indicate that this will be the first widespread rainfall of the season, brining light to moderate rain across most areas in Los Angeles County.
However, it is not the first rainfall of this water year, which is recorded from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30 each year. On Oct. 20, Downtown Los Angeles received a 10th of an inch of rain, according to Sweet.
