Storm #3 takes aim at the Southland

This morning's lows were not quite as chilly as yesterday's but certainly cold enough!

The views remain spectacular from the Valley floor, as indicated by this shot sent to us from Rob Churchwell.

You can send us your photos and more simply use!

A storm system (third in a row) arrives late tomorrow here in the Valley, but is making noise up north with heavy rain, flooding, and a Blizzard Warning for the Sierras.

A Flash Flood Watch will go into effect Thursday at 7 PM lasting though 4 PM Friday for areas West of the Valley including our local mountains, which means in addition to the expected rain, runoff could fill washes and create hazardous situations here as well as to our West. This watch runs all along the Santa Rosa Mountains bordering the Valley to the South as well.

A Winter Storm Warning is prepped to launch tomorrow at 10 PM for the mountains of Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. Potentially heavy snow is forecast above 5,500 feet. Snow levels will drop to 4,500 feet, not nearly as low as Monday's storm.

Snowfall totals could add ten inches or more to resort levels, particularly in the San Bernardino Mountains.

The heaviest rain will arrive early Friday morning. We expect West Valley locations get as much as 0.50", with much lower totals in the East Valley.

Highs today will be in line with yesterday's numbers (58 in Palm Springs).

After the rain ends, highs will climb a bit for the weekend, and be closer to normal next week.
