Pair Of Storms Head For Santa Monica, Los Angeles Today:

A pair of storms headed for the Southland today, threatening to generate rainfall from early Tuesday through Wednesday, National Weather Service forecasters said.

The first and weaker storm will spread rain across the Central Coast late this afternoon, with rainfall reaching Los Angeles County by around 3 a.m. Tuesday, according to an NWS statement.

The first of the two systems is expected to generate south winds with gusts up to 40 mph in the mountains and gusts of up to to 35 in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, it said. Snow levels, meanwhile, will remain near or above 6,000 feet.

The second, “somewhat stronger” storm will arrive Tuesday into Tuesday night and persist through Wednesday, according to the NWS. It is expected to produce between a half-inch and an inch of rain in coastal and valley areas, and between one and two inches in the mountains and foothills, the statement said.

“There will also be lower snow levels, and isolated thunderstorms over much of the land area,” it said

Snow level will fall to around 5,000 feet by Tuesday night, though snowfall at even lower levels is possible, according to the NWS, and showers are expected to continue through Wednesday afternoon.

“Potential impacts will include slick roadways with localized ponding of water possible in low-lying urban areas, winter driving conditions on mountain roads and possible snowfall on the higher elevations of the Grapevine Tuesday night into Wednesday,” the statement said, adding that “minor debris flows will be possible in and near burn areas…”
