L.A. Now Live: Latest on California storms, chat with meteorologist

Join us for an L.A. Now Live online discussion Friday at 12:30 p.m. about the winter storm systems dousing Southern California with more rain than it's seen in years.

We'll be joined by Inspector Scott Miller of the L.A. County Fire Department, meteorologist Kathryn Hoxsie of the National Weather Service in Oxnard and Jeff Reeb, director of emergency management for L.A. County.

Hoxsie will answer questions and comments about this specific storm system, weather patterns, rainfall amounts and the weekend's forecast as well as predictions for another bout of rain.

Miller will field questions and comments about how the region is responding to the rain and provide the latest updates on mud or debris flow, if any.

Reeb will be able to speak to the emergency operations taking place across the county, critical issues and actions being taken to address them.

During the chat, readers can submit questions and comments and we'll get to as many of them as we can. Questions and comments can also be tweeted anytime before or during the 12:30 p.m. discussion to chat moderator @aribloomekatz.
