Although the southern portions of the West Coast will enjoy a drying pattern this week, the soggy weather will continue for the northwest corner of the region. Meteorologists are predicting that several rounds of rain will batter the western U.S. in the coming days. When and where will the rain persist? Here is what you need to know.
Rain to Stick Around Through Monday for Majority of West Coast
It was a wet weekend for the bulk of the West Coast with the rain reaching as far south as Los Angeles and San Diego. This storm will continue to bring persistent moisture through at least Monday, translating to a soggy morning commute to start the new work week. The central and northern coasts of the region will pick up additional rainfall totals of up to 2.5 inches over the next several hours.
It will be even wetter in the foothills located to the south of Klamath National Forest stretching over southern Oregon and Northern California and down into the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. This zone is forecast to pick up another 3 to 4 inches from Sunday and into Monday.
The heavy rain will also linger around the Los Angeles Basin. The scattered rain showers on Sunday evening will evolve into a steady stream of moisture late in the night and into Monday. It has already been a wet few days for downtown Los Angeles, picking up about a half of an inch of rain through Saturday with up to another inch on tap through late Monday.
