L.A. area to see showers, heavy downpours this weekend

Los Angeles County residents can expect scattered showers and “fairly heavy downpours” in some parts of the region on Saturday, forecasters said.

A few scattered showers are expected Friday night, but Saturday is likely to be the wettest day of the weekend, said Dave Gomberg, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. Five to 15-minute rain showers are expected across the city from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday.

“It will rain in most areas, but the amount and intensity of precipitation will be variable,” he said.

Saturday’s all-day rains are the result of a “monsoon-like” system that has been stalling off the Southern California coast all week and should clear up by Sunday, according to Gomberg. The system so far has mainly caused rain in the mountains and along the coast, he said.

In the monsoon season, a high-pressure weather pattern hanging over the Four Corner states of Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico causes winds that turn clockwise and hit Southern California with muggy air or rain.

Thunderstorms are also possible in Los Angeles County Saturday, and beachgoers are being warned to keep an eye out for lightning, Gomberg said. Temperatures in the region are expected to range from the low 60s to the low 70s.
