A virus storm with windy winds is required to carry rain and snow to southern California starting Tuesday however will do little to compensate for Los Angeles’ rainfall shortfall this season.
An all-inclusive time of rain or showers is relied upon to start Tuesday night and proceed into Thursday, carrying a sum of 0.5 to 1 inch of rain in many zones. A few regions may get up to 1.5 inches.
There is a potential for weighty day off 6 to 12 inches — over 4,500 feet, and more modest sums at heights as low as 2,500 feet, as per National Weather Service meteorologist Todd Hall. That could influence travel through Tejon Pass on Interstate 5, Soledad Pass on Highway 14 and mountain roads.
Lower region zones like La Cañada Flintridge could see a blend of rain and day off what’s known as graupel: pellets that are framed when supercooled water beads freeze onto snow gems.
