1st storm of season brings rain to SoCal, snow to local mountains

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The first storm of the season dropped some light rain across Southern California Wednesday, along with the first snowfall of the season in the mountains.

Most of the Southland will see light drizzle throughout the day. Rainfall will be heaviest in the Inland Empire and southern Orange County with half an inch to nearly an inch expected in some areas by the end of the day.

Communities burned by recent wildfires should be particularly cautious to look out for possible flooding when the rain begins.

The rainfall will be a little lighter to the north, with about a quarter inch to a half inch in parts of Los Angeles County.

The mountains should see about 2-4 inches of snow at elevations over 6,500 feet and as much as 5-10 inches at higher elevations.

Also, a trough of low pressure could bring chances of shower and thunder and lightning activity for communities in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.

On Wednesday, Los Angeles and Orange counties will see a high temperature around 64, with clouds during the daytime.

The valleys and Inland Empire should expect a high of 61 on Wednesday.

Conditions should clear up in time for the weekend.
