Southern California witnessed another day of intermittent showers with gusty winds on Tuesday and likely to be followed by a day of cloudy skies, then another storm later in the week, according to the National Weather Service.
Tuesday’s storm will be weaker than Monday’s rain, with the bulk of it expected to soak areas north of Point Conception in Santa Barbara County by Tuesday night, the Weather Service reported.
But the storm is expected to bring gusty winds: The California Highway Patrol issued a wind advisory Tuesday morning for the 14 Freeway in Palmdale.
Most rainfall amounts will be less than a quarter-inch Tuesday before skies clear through Thursday, forecasters predicted.
Another storm that hits San Luis Obispo County late Thursday should begin raining on Ventura and Los Angeles counties by Friday and could drop up to an inch and a half of rain, the weather service said.
This week’s early storms are part of an atmospheric river that’s sending even heavier rain and snowfall into Northern California and the Sierra Nevada.
However, clear skies and warmer temperatures are expected over the weekend.
