It’s going to be a rainy night and, unfortunately, the wet weather will linger into Saturday morning, for some. Widespread rain will develop tonight through Saturday morning as our next storm system and cold front arrive. Rain is expected, but strong to severe storms and heavy rainfall are not. Widespread rainfall totals will likely be between 0.25-0.75″. Most places south of I-20 will see between 0.25-0.5″, while most places north of I-30 will see between 0.5-1.0″. This much rain will likely not cause any additional flooding problems.
Widespread rain will move from west to east across the area tonight. Lows will range from near 40 degrees north of I-30 to the upper 40s along and south of the I-20 corridor.
It will be soggy start to Saturday, especially for NW LA. The rain will wrap up from west to east across the area Saturday morning. However, the clouds are will linger for the entire day. Highs on Saturday will range from near 50s degrees north of I-30 to the mid 60s well south of I-20. Saturday will also be breezy. The wind will be out of the west at 10-20 mph. Saturday night will be mostly cloudy and cold. Lows will be in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees.
Sunday will be the drier and cooler half of the weekend. Highs will only be in the mid 40s to near 50 degrees. Even though rain is not expected, a ton of sunshine is not in the forecast either. Expect more clouds than sunshine throughout the day. Sunday night will be cold. Lows will be in the 30s almost area wide.
The start of next will be dry and chilly. Despite a ton of sunshine, highs will only be near 50 degrees on Monday. An area wide light freeze will be possible Monday night into Tuesday morning. Lows Monday night will be in the low to mid 30s. The rest of the week looks warmer. Highs will be in the mid 50s on Tuesday and near or above 60 degrees the rest of the week. After Saturday, our next chance of rain won’t be until the end of next week.
Have a great weekend!
