Fast-moving storm expected to bring widespread rain

A fast-moving cold front is expected to bring widespread rain and chillier temperatures to Los Angeles County beginning early Saturday.

“It could be heavy at times,” Bonnie Bartling, a weather specialist with the National Weather Service forecast office in Oxnard, said of the anticipated rain.

But the front will be quick-moving, with the brunt of the rain lasting possibly only two to four hours — “as opposed to something that sits over you for a day or two days,” she said.

After the heavier rain, there could still be some showers for a few hours before the area dries out by Saturday afternoon.

Friday’s high of 79 degrees in downtown Los Angeles will drop to about 68 on Saturday, Bartling said.

“And Sunday it will be maybe 70,” she said. “Monday it will pop back up into the 80s. Tuesday and Wednesday, it might get up to 90.”
