Soggy Southern California should expect a new moving storm next week.
The forecast calls for rain likely on Tuesday and Wednesday, with showers likely in some areas on Monday.
The region should expect a “long period of steady light to moderate rain” totaling 1 to 3 inches, said Ryan Kittell, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Oxnard.
By Wednesday, snow will accumulate at elevations around 3,000 to 4,000 feet, including at Tejon Pass.
Sunny skies should 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 affect central California, where some areas are already under flood warnings due to melting snow and rising 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 weather service in Hanford. The east side of the valley will see 1 to 2 inches, and the hills will see 2 to 4 inches, he said.
The latest storm in Southern California caused some minor flooding, but also brought mudslides in Orange County that caused four homes to be red-tagged.
Officials said more heavy rain could trigger more evacuations.
