First Alert Weather Alert: Incoming Pacific storm to bring rain and snow

It's a First Alert Weather Alert Day as a Pacific storm brings rain to Southern California, including in the Coachella Valley and surrounding mountains. We are tracking impacts to travel as the rain will make roads slick.

The thunderstorms that developed brought, at times, heavy rain to the Coachella Valley, with more than a quarter of an inch recorded in parts of the low desert. Impressive totals for the mountains bringing more than 1" to Mt. San Jacinto.

While the storms have moved east into Arizona, humidity will remain elevated into Thursday. Skies will gradually clear through the morning, providing much more sunshine than seen on Wednesday.

A second wave will move into California on Friday, going into Saturday. This second wave could also bring some scattered showers to the valley as the area of low pressure, still out over the Pacific, moves east.
