Another storm is expected to hit Southland in the coming days, with light rain already reaching parts of the country on Sunday afternoon.
Rainfall is expected to intensify early in the week and end by Wednesday evening.
Even though Monday is the first official day of spring, more wintry weather is expected to bring heavy rains, strong winds and snow in the mountains, according to the National Weather Service.
Along the coast and valleys, 1 to 2 inches of rain is expected, and 2 to 4 inches is expected in the mountains.
“From Tuesday into Tuesday evening, there is a small risk (15-40 percent chance) of heavy rainfall and flash floods along and west of the mountains with a slight risk (5-15 percent chance) of flash floods to our deserts,” the statement said. NWS Los Angeles announced this on Twitter. “Most of the snow is expected in the higher elevations.”
Snow levels could drop to 3,000 feet Tuesday night, meaning up to 2 inches of snow could accumulate on some major mountain passes.
While most of the Southland saw temperatures in the 70s over the weekend, the storm will bring cooler temperatures, with many daily highs dropping into the 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday.
