LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- It's already been quite the wet winter and we're not done yet. A new system sweeping through Southern California this weekend will bring rain with intermittent heavy pockets.

This system will be cold but will only last until Sunday afternoon, dropping just over an inch of rain before we see conditions clear up. After that we'll see a few clear, nice days but another light system could arrive by Wednesday.

This weekend's storm will be heavier in Northern California. A blizzard warning has been issued in the Sierras, which could expect as much as eight feet of snow in some places. Travelers are urged to avoid the area for the next several days and Yosemite National Park will be closed over the weekend.

The system will be lighter in Southern California, bringing rain throughout the day Saturday and totaling around an inch in most areas, but up to 1.5 inches in the foothills. Temperatures will drop to the 50s and low 60s.

Los Angeles and Orange counties can expect a high temperature of 59 on Saturday, with just under an inch of rain. It should continue through Sunday morning and then clear up by the afternoon.

The valleys and the Inland Empire can expect similar conditions, reaching a high of 58 and rainfall totals just over an inch.

Beaches will see a high of 59 on Saturday, with up to half an inch of rain.

Mountains will see a high of 39 during the day Saturday, dropping to 26 overnight. About 4-17 inches of snow will fall Saturday at elevations over 7,000 feet.

Deserts should see wind gusts up to 70 mph with a high of 54 during the daytime Saturday and less than half an inch of rain.
