More rain in Southern California next week

Soggy Southern California should expect another storm next week.

The forecast calls for rain likely Tuesday and Wednesday, with a chance of showers in some areas Monday.

The region should expect a “long period of steady light to moderate rain” totaling 1 to 3 inches, said Ryan Kittell, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

By Wednesday, snow will accumulate at elevations of approximately 3,000 to 4,000 feet, including Tejon Pass.

Sunny skies are expected to return Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

The new storm, which would be the 12th atmospheric river to hit the state this rainy season, will also hit central California, where some areas are already under flood warnings due to melting snow and swollen rivers.

In central California, residents can expect about a half inch of rain along the west side of the San Joaquin Valley, said Jim Bagnall, a meteorologist with the Hanford Weather Service. The east side of the valley will see 1 to 2 inches, and the foothills will see 2 to 4 inches, he said.

The latest storm in Southern California caused minor flooding, but also triggered landslides in Orange County that caused four homes to be red-tagged.

Officials said heavier rains could trigger more evacuations.
