Weather V_F

City officials have raised Glendora’s alert status to YELLOW after the National Weather Service issued a special weather statement regarding a pacific storm system to move through southwestern California.

The fast moving cold front will likely bring rain this afternoon through Saturday with possible thunderstorms, gusty winds and the possibility of minor mud and debris flows in the Colby Fire Impact Area.


A YELLOW status means:

  • No evacuation orders in effect.
  • Rain-related parking restrictions in effect.
  • Residents directed to remove vehicles, trash bins and other obstructions from streets and/or travel lanes as they will be subject to tow or removal by authorities.
  • No restricted entry to impact area/potentially impacted areas.

Rainfall amounts are expected to range from one-quarter to three-quarters of an inch of rain for most areas inland with the coast receiving far more. The San Gabriel Mountains could receive as much as an inch of rain.

Wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour are possible in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Friday will mostly be sunny with a high near 76 degrees with the chance for rain occurring mainly after 11 p.m.

For Saturday, the chance for rain is 40 percent before 11 a.m. The rest of the day is expected to be mostly cloudy with a high around 67.
