Rain: Wet Weather Headed to La Cañada

By the time you sip your morning coffee and head out the door, the fog sets in and showers might begin.

Residents should prepare for a threat of mudslides or flooding as an early season rainfall heads toward the Los Angeles County mountains, according to the National Weather Service.

Forecasters expect less than a quarter inch of rain to the area, however there is a slight chance thunderstorms could bring a higher rainfall amount, the agency reported. Wind gusts could hit about 50 mph.

Los Angeles County locals and workers are gearing up for early season storms with sandbags and concrete barriers in the Station Fire Burn area, according to KNBC-TV.

It could take about three to five more years of the burned land to recover after the 2009 Station Fire, which means several more anxious winters, KNBC-TV reported. 

Officials urge locals to clean out storm drains to prevent localized urban flooding and finish any outdoor projects.

Drivers should look out since accumulated oil on the asphalt can also make the roads slippery, according to the NWS. The mountains could have snow in higher elevations.

Here is the forecast:

Today: 20 percent chance of showers, high near 68 degrees.

Tonight: 20 percent chance of rain after 11 p.m., low near 56 degrees.

Wednesday: The chance for rain is 100 percent. Precipitation is expected to be heavy at times, with temperatures hovering near 63 degrees. Thunderstorms possible after 11 p.m., low about 50 degrees.

Thursday: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, high near 63 degrees. A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 11 p.m., low around 50 degrees.

Friday: High near 67 degrees, low around 53 degrees.

Saturday: High near 73 degrees, low around 57 degrees.
