Stormy conditions, common of a strong El Niño weather pattern, will make a brief return to Southern California and the southwestern United States this weekend.
This storm will also end the warmth across the region through Saturday by sending temperatures below normal into early February.
How intense this storm will be once it arrives across the Southwest remains in question.
“How heavy the rain, snow and wind get in Southern California will depend on how quickly the storm strengthens as it approaches the coast,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
Showers will make an appearance to San Francisco, Phoenix and Las Vegas. The heaviest rain may fall from Los Angeles to San Diego.
