In Southern California, a cool week with some possible rain

It’s going to be cool and cloudy on Monday, with forecasters predicting precipitation for parts of Southern California, but not until Tuesday.

Most of the week is expected to be cool with high temperatures hovering around the low 60s through Wednesday for parts of the region, according to the National Weather Service.

A weak weather system from the northwest should increase the chance of showers on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service, but some areas may not see precipitation.

“We have a pretty favorable weather pattern for the possibility of rain, but the system moving down tomorrow is very weak,” said National Weather Service meteorologist David Sweet. “It’s about a 20% chance for Tuesday.”

This chance of rain is expected to reach the Los Angeles Basin, with rain expected to reach Orange County in the afternoon.

Forecasters aren’t expecting much in terms of total rainfall. The weather system moving through the area is “pretty moisture hungry” and around a tenth of an inch is expected in most areas.

“It’s almost probably less [rainfall]”Sweet said. “Some people won’t get anything.”

At night, temperatures across most of the Southern California region are expected to drop to just below 50 degrees.

The areas most likely to see rain are the mountains, but don’t expect a lot of snow.

Mt. Baldy — the closest ski resort to Los Angeles — currently has about 10 inches of snow and two runs open, according to the resort’s snow report Monday.

The mountain is expected to see light snowfall Tuesday morning and evening, but little to no snow accumulation is expected, according to the weather service.

Big Bear Mountain Ski Resort in the San Bernardino Mountains is also expected to see snow Tuesday, with less than a half inch of snow accumulation.

By Wednesday, officials said, the rain system is expected to leave the area and leave sunny skies. Still, temperatures are expected to stay around the low 60s.

Another weather system is heading south of the region, but it’s likely to stay just north of Los Angeles County, where the system could bring more rain on Friday.
