Winter’s not over yet as cold temperatures and rain from Alaska will blast through the Southland Sunday.

Just after we basked in sunny, record high temperatures through the end of the week, the mercury will remain low while the chance of rain soars to as much as 70 percent, according to the National Weather Service.

The expected showers come courtesy of a trough out of the Gulf of Alaska and will not be particularly intense. It is expected to only produce about a quarter of an inch of rain in the Los Angeles area, but three-quarters of an inch in the mountains and foothills, said National Weather Service meteorologist Curt Kaplan

Temperatures will drop by another several degrees — up to 12 — Sunday from where they were on Saturday with gusty winds in some areas.

The high is expected to be 59 with a low of 50.

Sunday’s rain will be followed by several days of dry weather.
