Rain starts off soggy weekend in Southland
COSTA MESA, Calif. (KABC) -- The rain is making for a soggy start to the weekend in Southern California, but a change is on the way.
A light rain fell in spots across most of the Southland overnight and into Saturday morning, but the rain-making system is moving toward the east, leaving mostly cloud cover in its wake.
An area of low pressure is leaving SoCal and heading toward Arizona, decreasing the chance of rain for the rest of Saturday down to around 20-30 percent. Chances of rain will kick up a little bit to about 40 percent Sunday when a cold front moves through.
Then, things are expected to cool down and dry out for the start of the workweek. Saturday, temps are expected to hit mid-60s for Los Angeles and Orange counties, the I.E. and Valleys, mid-40s for the local mountains and upper 50s for the High Desert.
The wet weather has caused some major problems on the roads, with several hundred accidents reported over the past few days. Rain is said to be the major factor in most of those incidents, which included a 16-car pileup on the 101 Freeway at Highland Avenue Friday morning. Six people were taken to the hospital, including one person who suffered major injuries.
