Storm could bring hail, downpours; snow to mountain peaks

The tri-city region could see storm cells capable of producing “brief heavy downpours,” hail and “dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning” Thursday evening as a weather system moves across the Southland, according to the National Weather Service.

Although there’s a 50% chance of rain today, the brunt of the storm isn’t expected to hit until tonight, with up to 3 inches of snow possible at elevations above 7,000 feet, the weather service said.

Daytime temperatures in the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena area are expected to remain the high-60s to low-70s, but are due to climb on Friday and through the weekend after the storm moves out.

By Saturday, expect mostly clear skies with high temperatures in the mid-80s, according to the National Weather Service.
