L.A., Ca., USA — The Los Angeles area is bracing for several day’s worth of wet weather, with the sites of the fall wildfires being the spots of most concern.
The National Weather Service said a flash flood warning is in effect for the burn areas from the fall wildfires from 1 p.m. Wednesday until 4 a.m. Thursday.
The forecast for the coast and valley areas is one half inch to two inches of rain. Mountains above 4,000 feet could get one to two feet of snow plus winds gusting up to 40 mph, reducing visibility to near zero at times.
Snow levels might lower to 3,000 feet at times.
Jamie Meier of the National Weather Service said more rain is expected to arrive in the area Friday and last through Saturday.
