Showers begin to fall across L.A. area; more rain expected

Small amounts of rain began falling across the Los Angeles area Wednesday night as a weakening cold front moved over the area, ushering in cooler and wet weather expected to last for several days.

The National Weather Service said that a couple of systems would result in rain, high winds, cooler weather and snow through Friday night.

About half an inch of rain or less was expected in most areas, and up to an inch could fall in mountain and foothill areas, the agency said. Four to eight inches of snow could be expected above 6,500 feet in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Wind gusts between 40 and 50 mph were expected across Ventura and Los Angeles counties and 55 mph in the mountains, the Weather Service said.

On Wednesday night, people on Twitter said light rain was falling from Upland and Lake Balboa to Signal Hill and Santa Monica and Westwood. Rain also was reported in Simi Valley.
