SoCal to get brief break from rain before next storm rolls in

The first storm of the spring season moved in and out of Southern California on Sunday, clearing the way for a cloudy but dry week before heavier rainfall returns next weekend.

Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued Sunday afternoon for central Los Angeles County. Thunderstorms and hail were reported over Alhambra and near West Covina.

On Saturday, Lancaster Airport set a record for the date with .53 inches of rain, breaking the record of .39 inches set in 1995, according to the NWS.

Most areas saw scattered showers.

Warmer and dry conditions are expected early this week before a drop in temperatures before another weekend storm. After highs in the 70 for some areas on Wednesday, the dip in temperatures begins Thursday with significant cooling this weekend.

“We could get some rain that could impact your plans,” said NBCLA forecaster Belen De Leon. “It’s going to feel like winter again this upcoming weekend.”

The storm is expected to slide down the coast, possibly bringing rain late Friday and into the weekend. The storm could produce heavy rain, mountain snow and gusty winds
