After a Mild Monday, More Hurricanes Are Coming to Southern California This Holiday Week

More rain and snow are expected for Southern California this week, starting Wednesday afternoon through the holiday weekend, meteorologists said Monday, Dec. 20.

National Weather Service meteorologist Brant Maxwell said the highs were in the mid-60s with clear skies on Monday. Temperatures will remain in that range on Tuesday despite increasing cloud cover, with predicted highs of 67 degrees in Fullerton, 68 degrees in Rancho Cucamonga and 69 degrees in Van Nuys and Riverside.

“There won’t be much of a drop in temperature until Wednesday, but it could feel very cold without sunshine,” Brandt said.

Meteorologists said two storm systems were making their way into the region, with the first storm expected to bring more rainfall with a possible break on Friday, when the second storm was expected to begin the same day. Rain was predicted in the Inland Empire, Orange and Los Angeles counties, with potentially a few inches of snow in the mountains.

“Since this will be happening a lot during the holiday week, people need to travel really careful,” said Elizabeth Schenk, another NWS meteorologist. “Take extra precautions when you’re traveling across the region.”

The highest chance of rain during the first system is on Thursday, Schenk said. That storm is expected to hit three-quarters of an inch to 1.25 inches in Orange County, with a similar amount projected for the Inland Empire, with some pockets expected to receive slightly more rain, she said.

Schenk said the first storm will be warm and the snow level will be about 8,000 feet, so high-altitude areas like Big Bear could potentially see up to half an inch of snow by Friday.

Schenk said the second storm would bring less rain but would be cooler, with a few inches of snow expected on Friday and Saturday at altitudes of about 5,000 feet.

Orange County and other areas of the Inland Empire are expected to receive half an inch to an inch of rain through Sunday.

David Sweet, another meteorologist, said in Los Angeles County, half an inch to 1.5 inches of rain was forecast from Wednesday through the weekend. He said that there is a possibility of about 1.5 to three inches of rainfall in the hilly areas.

Sweet said winds of 50 to 60 mph are expected in some areas of the mountains during the storm.
