Wet conditions throughout the Southland early Thursday morning raised flooding concerns in local burn areas.

Country Club Drive in Burbank was shut down at Via Montana. The windy mountain road was hit hard by mud flow during a major storm in January. This time, police said, there were a couple of inches of muddy rain that crews were working to clean up.

Meantime, the National Weather Service tracked the storm moving through the La Tuna Canyon burn area to north of La Canada and east to Altadena -- several areas where flooding was reported.

Sheriff's deputies said despite the wet conditions, there were no major issues or evacuation orders underway.

Scattered showers are expected to linger for the rest of the day, and a third storm for the week will come Friday.
