LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- After a few days of clear skies and pleasant temperatures, a Pacific cold front is bringing the chances of rain on Monday.
Some areas of Southern California saw some scattered showers in the morning, but the better opportunity for rain starts in the afternoon hours. This system is not associated with an atmospheric river so it will not pack the same punch as other recent storms.
The light rain is expected to taper off overnight into Tuesday morning, but yet another storm is slated to arrive in the area by the weekend. That one is expected to tap into an atmospheric river and will potentially bring stronger rain Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Until then, Los Angeles and Orange counties can expect a 30% chance of rain Monday night. A high of 65 is expected, dipping to 52 at night. Warmer temperatures and clear skies are set to return Wednesday.
The valleys and the Inland Empire can expect similar conditions, reaching a high of 65.
Beaches will reach a high of 63 during the day and dip to 54 at night with some evening showers and 1-4 foot surf.
Mountains will also see some rain, reaching 50 during the daytime and dropping to 31 at night. When the new rain comes, it will snow in the mountains above 7,000 feet.
Deserts have a 20% chance of some evening rain, dipping to 39 at night. It'll be 62 throughout the day.
