Two more storms will hit Southern California this week

Los Angeles is not expected to see significant precipitation until later this week, forecasters said, despite intermittent rain overnight.

The first storm in a series of storms hit the region Tuesday night, dumping about a half-inch of rain in Los Angeles County overnight, officials said. The heaviest rain occurred in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties farther north.

“We saw what we expected,” said Kristen Lund, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

Another storm was forecast to affect the area early Thursday. But rainfall in the second storm was light, with a tenth of an inch for Los Angeles County, along with cooler temperatures, forecasters said.

On New Year’s Eve, a third storm is expected to bring widespread rainfall across Southern California, bringing 1 to 3 inches of rain, according to the weather service. Snowfall is expected between 2,000 to 3,000 metres.

The rain is expected to end on Sunday, with the maximum temperature hovering around 60 degrees.

Weather experts say the storms are not expected to dent Southern California’s drought, but they should be beneficial for Northern California, where many of the state’s reservoirs are located.

According to the National Weather Service, Northern California and the Bay Area could see 8 to 12 inches of accumulation over the next 12 days.
