Despite sunny skies in some parts of the South Bay on Monday afternoon, dark clouds and rainfall greeted some commuters in the morning as a storm system slowly worked its way into the Southland, with the threat of precipitation expected to continue into Tuesday.
The storm was expected to bring only minor amounts of rain in most parts of the Southland, with the exception of some mountainous areas.
The system "will bring continued gusty winds to interior sections through the evening, along with much colder temperatures, rain showers and mountain snow," according to a National Weather Service advisory. "Rainfall amounts should be less than a quarter-inch in most areas, except around one-half to an inch in the favored south-facing slopes of the Los Angeles and Ventura County mountains."According to the NWS, there's a 50 percent chance of precipitation overnight Monday into Tuesday.
