Showers and Thunderstorms Possible Through Tuesday

Rainy conditions and cooler temperatures are forecast in the Southland.

A late season storm Monday brought the Southland showers, strong winds and a wet commute.

Temperatures were around 5-10 degrees below normal as a result of the low pressure system, which was generating gusty south-to-southwest winds and could produce thunderstorms, according to the National Weather Service.

Mountain and desert regions were expected to be particularly hard hit by the wind, NWS forecasters said.

Rainfall amounts will vary because of the showery nature of the storm. Between a quarter-inch and a half-inch of rain may fall in Los Angeles and Ventura counties Monday, according to the NWS.

"Wet and slick roadways are expected for the morning and evening work commutes, with increased delays likely," said an NWS advisory.

Snow won't be a concern Monday, but light accumulation is possible above 6,000 feet.

Highs Monday were forecast to remain largely in the 60s: 46 on Mount Wilson; 61 in Saugus; 64 in Newport Beach, Pasadena, Palmdale, Lancaster and San Gabriel; 65 in Long Beach, Avalon, Burbank, Woodland Hills, downtown L.A. and at LAX; and 67 in Anaheim.

More showers and similar temperatures were expected Tuesday.
