Storm to clear out tonight, sunny skies, warming trend to return

A storm coming off the Pacific Ocean won't pack quite the punch that had been expected, forecasters said.

The low-pressure system will likely "just graze the area as it slides down the coast," according to the National Weather Service, producing less rain in the inland areas than what had been forecast earlier.

The storm could still produce wind gusts of up to 60 mph in mountain areas, prompting winter weather advisories for the mountainous passes in north San Fernando Valley.

Most of the rain in the tri-city area will likely hit in the mid-afternoon, breaking up overnight into partly cloudy skies for Wednesday, according to the weather service.

Daytime temperatures will remain in the mid-60s.

After the storm clears, a slight warming trend under sunny skies will likely carry through the end of the week.
