The projected amount of rain Southern California could receive in the next 7 days

The weather in Southern California is set to become wetter as an atmospheric river event is predicted to bring rain each day through next week, according to meteorologists. The first, weaker storm is expected to arrive on Sunday, bringing light rain to the Central Coast and Ventura County through Monday. Los Angeles County may initially see little to no rainfall. However, a more widespread rain event is projected to start on Wednesday, with the potential for substantial rainfall and even thunderstorms in Southern California, as per KTLA 5 weather anchor Kaj Goldberg.

The likelihood of rain extends from the coastal areas throughout the Los Angeles Basin and into the Inland Empire, lasting into the weekend. Goldberg advises that the region will be on storm watch from Monday through Saturday before the skies eventually clear.

Anticipated rainfall totals for Monday through Saturday are estimated to be 1.00” to 2.50” for Coasts/Basin, 2.00” – 3.50” for Valleys/Foothills, and 3.00” – 4.00” for Mountains. Localized street flooding could occur due to the rain, and snow levels are expected to remain high, generally above 7,000 feet, according to the National Weather Service.

Overall, Southern California is preparing for a week of wet weather, followed by a clearing period as the rains subside.
