Residents on the northern outskirts of Los Angeles County up to the Central Coast could be in for a wet and noisy day Monday, with weather forecasters predicting thunder and lightning with a chance of hail.
Antelope Valley residents are enjoying a “slight reprieve from the severe weather, but will likely see the storm ramp up in the afternoon," said National Weather Service meteorologist Dave Bruno.
Forecasters are expecting small-sized hail and wind gusts up to 50 mph to hit Kern and San Bernardino counties and the area north of Lake Los Angeles.
“We think the thunderstorm threat will stay out of the valleys,” Bruno said. “Most will be confined to the mountains.”
The bulk of the turbulent storm passed through Southern California over the weekend. There were more than 50 lightning strikes between Victorville and Barstow, KTLA reported.
