Southern California rain: 1st in series of storm systems moves in
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The first in a series of storm systems moved into Southern California, dampening streets and freeways, and causing temperatures to plummet.
In the San Fernando Valley, umbrellas started appearing as showers fell Wednesday night, soaking streets and sidewalks. After weeks of warm fall weather, some people didn't mind getting caught in the rain.
"I love the rain. I love cold weather and I like it to feel like wintertime. I'm tired of the 110-degree weather in November," said James Lewis of Glendale.
Scattered showers started falling across parts of Southern California during the evening rush. In downtown Los Angeles, drivers were suddenly forced to navigate on slick streets.
The stormy weather moving in could bring much-needed moisture to Southern California.
"The rain is great. We need it. Southern California needs the rain," said Lupe Horn of Sylmar.
The rainy weather is expected to last through Friday with temperatures reaching the 60s across most of the Southland.
