Spring showers and below normal temperatures are part of the forecast for Southern California through the first week of May.

Light rain and drizzle arrived early Monday before the morning start.

Afternoon highs will be in the 60s to 60s in most areas, with highs dropping as low as the 50s in mountain communities. Wind speed will increase throughout the day.

The normal high for this time of year in downtown Los Angeles is 73 to 75 degrees. Monday’s high will reach 65.

The average May rainfall in downtown Los Angeles is 0.32 inches.

This is what you can expect the rest of the week.

When will it rain?

After light showers on Monday, heavier rains are expected Tuesday through Thursday due to the unusually cold storm.

Coastal areas and valleys will see 0.25 to 0.75 inches of rain. Mountain communities will receive half an inch to one inch.

The heaviest precipitation will reach mid week.

Mountainous areas can also expect gusty winds and more snow, perhaps 4 to 8 inches above 5,000 feet.

The rain lessens on Friday and temperatures begin to rise.
