News, Southern California braces for rainfall and strong winds on election day : detailed suggestions and opinions about Southern California braces for rainfall and strong winds on election day .
Storms are expected to start hitting Southern California early this week, soaking the region and buffeting it with powerful winds through election day.
“We’re expecting our first really significant rainfall of the season,” said meteorologist Kristen Stewart with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.
Stewart said that across the region stretching from San Luis Obispo County to Los Angeles County, the storms are expected to bring at least an inch or two of rainfall, with 3 inches or more possible in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Rain is likely to begin Sunday night across the Central Coast before gradually moving into Los Angeles County on Monday, she said.
The heaviest rains are expected Tuesday, she said. The storm system is also predicted to bring strong winds to the area, with gusts ranging from 30 to 50 miles per hour in much of the region, and upwards of 60 miles per hour in the Antelope Valley, Stewart said.
