Cloudy weather until rain later in the week for Southern California

Clouds will hang over Southern California for the next couple of days, with rain predicted for the weekend that could dampen New Year’s Eve celebrations.

For those planning to watch Monday’s Rose Parade in bleachers or curbside in Pasadena, or the Rose Bowl game afterward, it would be smart to pack an umbrella — just in case.

Monday should start out dry, but there is a 30 percent to a 40 percent chance of rain that day, said Kristen Stewart, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Leading up to the big day, for the next several days, highs in Los Angeles County will be in the low 60s in most areas with temperatures dipping overnight to the mid- to upper-40s in some places, meteorologists said.

Most of the county still stay dry until Saturday, which is expected to bring an inch to two inches of rainfall, she said. In the eastern San Gabriel foothill areas, the anticipated rainfall could be more than two inches.

In Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties, the forecast calls for rain to possibly hit earlier, with showers, perhaps, on Thursday and Friday, said Adam Roser, another meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

In these counties, temperatures will stay quite consistent, with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s in most areas, with Saturday’s rain expected to bring around 3/4th of an inch of rain to the coastal areas plus one inch or more to parts of the Inland Empire.

Big Bear could catch an inch or so of snow, he said.
