Rain, Thunder Are on The Way

Coastal areas could get about a quarter-inch, while mountains could see twice that.

A change is in the air, and it could be quite wet. The National Weather Service indicates there is a 20 percent chance of showers today, a 40 percent chance of thunderstorms tonight.

The odds are even better for rain throughout Thursday, when thunderstorms are likely—a 70 percent chance during the day, and 60 percent at night.

There's a slight chance of showers on Friday, with Friday night being partly cloudy and Saturday being sunny.

The NWS released a weather statement for Orange County on Tuesday night, claiming a low pressure system off the Central California coast will move through Southwest California beginning late Tuesday through early Friday. Numerous showers and scattered thunderstorms are expected, with the bulk of showers on Thursday.

Although precipitation could be variable, general rainfall amounts could be a quarter-inch near the coast to a half-inch in the mountains for Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

ARE YOU GLAD TO SEE THE RAIN OR WOULD YOU RATHER IT CONTINUE TO BE CLEAR AND SUNNY? Rain is free water. Nice to have free water once in a while at night so I can avoid using my sprinklers. Otherwise, yes clear and ($300/sqft) sunny. We're paying for it. If you don't like it, move somewhere cheap where it isn't sunny. According to officials, the typical Southern Californian spends only 17 minutes per day outside yet they pay big bucks to live here for the weather.
