The days of steady rain that have soaked the Los Angeles area are expected to end midday Monday as showers give way to sunny skies.

A few lingering showers are expected to hit the region Monday morning, but National Weather Service meteorologist Kathy Hoxsie said the light precipitation would be the last L.A. sees this week. There is a slight chance of rain near Santa Barbara on Thursday, she said, but that’s it.


‘We’re going to be clearing out and warming up over the next several days,’ she said.

Temperatures are expected to stay in the mid-60s Monday through the valleys and downtown Los Angeles, and warm to the upper 60s and low 70s Tuesday, Hoxsie said.

Although it was a soggy weekend, Hoxsie said no rain records were broken.

‘It was consistent rain but not particularly heavy,’ she said. ‘Just the perfect rain.’
