LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Light rain was falling in the Southland overnight and early this morning, with another, possibly stronger dose of rain expected to move in early Saturday, forecasters said.
The National Weather Service said the precipitation was expected to taper off from north to south, with lingering morning showers and light drizzle mainly in the Los Angeles area.
The remainder of Thursday and most of Friday will be dry, but the month-long trend of below-average temperatures will continue into March with highs mainly in the low-to-mid 60s, the NWS said.
The next system will come in Friday night or early Saturday and at least for now is expected to be stronger than Thursday's, with some rain expected in all areas of the Southland, and from one-third to one inch of rain expected at L.A. beaches over the weekend.
Rain is expected to arrive in Los Angeles County just after sunrise Saturday and as early as 9 p.m. Friday night along the central California coast. The bulk of the rain is expected to fall during the overnight and morning hours and then start tapering off by the afternoon.
