Strong Pacific Storm Headed For Southland

The National Weather Service is predicting a potentially powerful storm to hit the area and bring heavy rain Tuesday.

The area will likely see some rain beginning today and into the night, but the stronger storm will begin Tuesday, Dec. 2. The second storm has the potential to bring 1 to 2 inches of rain to the coastal and valley areas with possibly 2 to 3 inches of rain in the foothills and mountains, the NWS said.

It appears that the rain will develop in most areas Tuesday and persist into the night. Forecasters added that there is still uncertainty as to when the timing of the heaviest rainfall.

This Tuesday storm could also bring a two-to-three-hour burst of heavy rain which could bring flash flooding, mud slides and debris flows to recent burn areas, the NWS said.

The high for Tuesday is expected to be near 60 degrees with a low of around 55.

Wednesday brings a chance for some showers to the area and possibly into Thursday.

The City of Glendora has pre-filled sandbags, empty sand bags and a supply of sand free for residents who need to protect their property ahead of Tuesday’s storm. The materials are available in the city yard, 440 South Loraine Avenue. The yard can be accessed from the dirt road just north of the railroad tracks.

Materials as available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., with pre-filled bags usually left outside the city yard gate after hours. Those acquiring materials must live at a Glendora address.
