You may have heard this one before: The National Weather Service is saying that the nice weather is soon going to be replaced by the wet stuff.
According to NWS forecasters, there will be a 40 percent chance of rain Thursday, which is expected to increase to 50 percent the following day.
Thursday will be at least 10 degrees cooler, with increasing clouds early. Showers could continue overnight Thursday into Friday, then let up for a time before the second, colder, wetter storm arrives Friday night. That storm could bring new snow to Southern California's mountains and as much as one-half inch of rain to the valleys and coastal strip.
Saturday should be the stormiest day of the bunch, with thunderstorms possible and periods of heavy rain.
Next week remains a question mark. Computer models vary greatly between runs. One calls for more rain next week, and another predicts a Santa Ana.
