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.

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.
