    Expect on-and-off showers through Friday, the weekend and on into next week as a series of storms move over Southern California.

    We will see periods of no rain or just sprinkles and periods of heavier rain and possibly even some downpours.

    Rainfall totals will vary greatly from about a quarter of an inch by Sunday to an inch or more west of the mountain. In the mountains themselves we could see as much as 3"-5" according to forecaster Whitney Southwick.

    As many as three separate storm systems are expected to roll over the county by Monday with a fourth, more potent storm possibly hitting us midweek.

    Even though these storms are coming in just before Christmas, don’t expect to see snow in our local mountains. A subtropical air mass will keep warm temperatures around, pushing snow levels quite high. Accumulations will remain above 8000 feet, according to the National Weather Service.
