Light rain is expected in the Southland Friday, and there’s a chance of thunderstorms Friday evening, according to the National Weather Service.
Friday’s precipitation will be followed by light rain Saturday, according to the NWS. And another light storm out of the north is expected Monday.
Forecasters predicted less than .10 of an inch of rain Friday, although between a quarter and a half-inch are possible in a thunderstorm.
“Sometimes, light is good,” said NWS meteorologist Rich Thompson, adding he sees no chance of mudslides or debris flows, even over areas previously denuded by wildfires.
