A series of storms moving through the area this week could bring periods of steady, heavy rain and chilly temperatures, weather forecasters say.
Showers today will build into a more powerful weather system on Wednesday, bringing steady rain and pushing daytime temperatures down into the 60s, or about 10 degrees below normal, according to the National Weather Service.
The unseasonal storm pattern comes as fire season starts to take hold in foothills, which continues to remain vulnerable to the effects of heavy rain in the Station fire burn area.
A chance of thunderstorms and showers will linger through Thursday.
More mild conditions are expected to return the Glendale-Pasadena area for the weekend, with daytime temperatures returning to the low-80s with sunny skies, according to the weather service.
