Heavy rain moving in overnight into Friday

Heavy rain is expected to hit the Southland beginning Thursday night and continue into Friday morning.

Temps will be mostly in the mid 60s in L.A. and O.C.. The valleys, I.E. and beaches will be in the low-60s and the mountain areas will see temps in the low-40s.

The heavy rain is expected to hit around midnight starting with Ventura County, pushing its way to Los Angeles County by around 2 a.m. Rainfall will likely spread well into Los Angeles County, the Inland Empire and Orange County in time for the morning commute.

The heaviest rain is expected to fall between 4 a.m. and noon Friday. Mountains may see 5 to 10 inches of snow.

A flash flood watch has been issued for the Antelope Valley, the Los Angeles mountain areas, the San Gabriel Valley and the Ventura County coast and valleys. The watch is expected to expire Friday evening.

The Santa Ana mountains and foothills are also under a flash flood watch, expected to expire early Saturday morning.

Most of the Southland is also under a high wind warning until Friday morning, and a high surf advisory is in effect for the coastal areas in Orange, Ventura and Los Angeles counties until Friday afternoon.
