Showers, thunderstorms may come to L.A. County this weekend

Possible showers and thunderstorms could hit Los Angeles County beginning Saturday afternoon and into the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

According to David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard, there is a 20 to 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the coastal and valley areas and up to a 50 percent chance in the mountains and deserts.

This is expected to last through the weekend.

“Starting Monday, the showers and thunderstorms will start moving again across the mountains and deserts,” Sweet said.

Temperatures ranged from the high 60s to mid 70s along the coast early Saturday. But Sweet said he expects partly cloudy skies and “temperatures likely to rise at least into the 80s” across the region.

“In some areas it won’t even rain. Other areas grow up to half an inch to an inch high when under a heavy cell,” Sweet said. “It’s extremely variable.”

There is a flash flood watch for the San Gabriel Valley and the Santa Clarita Valley “just in case one of those cells manages to dump very heavy rain,” Sweet said.

The Weather Service also has a beach hazard warning for a southerly swell beginning Saturday afternoon and lasting through Wednesday afternoon, Sweet said.

“It’s a bit of wave activity that’s going to come from Hurricane Frank,” he said. Showers, thunderstorms may come to L.A. County this weekend
