Good Thursday morning,

Wow, with all the rain this week I really had to think about what day it was... I started to type Wednesday then I had to check.

The heaviest rain is now over Ventura and moving into LA. Early this morning Oxnard area and Silver Strand Beach got 3 inches of rain in 3 hours.

Looking at the zoom earth you can see the center of the low is just offshore of point conception https://zoom.earth/ ...just west of us.

This is going to bring us numerous showers and rain through out today. Expect rain heavy at times amounting to another 1 to 3 inches through Friday.

Wrap around moisture will occur late today into Friday with showers throughout the day, but Friday will be drier.

By Saturday, the low-pressure system will move East, and the rain will be over, here with only some stray showers in LA.

I would hate to be traveling by air or even car in LA today. There is going to be tons of delays and many accidents on the road.

Stay away from there if you can.

Sunday, Christmas Eve day, the rain will be all but a memory. We will have 3 days of great weather with high pressure building in through Tuesday the 26th.

Wednesday and Thursday of next week, long range models are hinting another storm. However that is a Christmas away.  

Here are the numbers so far rainfall has been 3 to 8 inches for most this week so far https://www.weather.gov/lox/LAXRRMSBA

Just look at rocky Butte in SLO with over 15 inches of rain so far this week https://www.weather.gov/lox/LAXRRMSLO

Enjoy the rain, it will be showery more than steady rain the next two days.
                                                                           4 days till Christmas
