SoCal will see more rain and potential for flooding on Wednesday.

The cold, heavy rain will continue to fall across Southern California Wednesday, with flooding and mudslides possible in vulnerable burn areas.

A number of flash flood watches and evacuation orders are in place across the region, as the rain is not expected to let up until Friday. Cold temperatures and gusty winds are also expected in some areas.

People living in areas impacted by recent wildfires should be prepared for the possibility of mudslides and flash flooding, as the hillsides have been left with little vegetation to absorb the flow of water.

Wednesday is expected to start off with light-to-moderate rain during the morning commute, and heavier downpours are expected in the afternoon.

Los Angeles and Orange counties should expect a heavy downpour Wednesday, dumping 1-2 inches of rain in some areas, with a high temperature of 60 degrees.

The valleys and Inland Empire could see up to 2 inches of rain Wednesday along with debris flows and a high of 59.

Beaches will see rain, with surf in the 3-6 foot range and a high of 60.

Mountain areas will be snowy and windy, with 6-12 inches of snow at elevations over 7,000 feet and a high temperature of just 43, dropping to 25 overnight.

Deserts will see rain with a high of 57 degrees.

The rain will continue through most of the week. Wednesday should see some lighter rain, but then another strong storm is moving in Thursday, accompanied by heavy rain and likely flooding.
