THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY EVENING. DURING THIS
TIME...THERE WILL ALSO BE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS CAPABLE
OF PRODUCING BRIEF HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND SMALL HAIL. THESE

A FEW INCHES OF SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE AT RESORT LEVELS...WHICH MAY

UP TO 45 MPH WILL LIKELY ACCOMPANY THIS STORM IN ANTELOPE VALLEY
AND POSSIBLY THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY MOUNTAINS.

RAINFALL AMOUNTS WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL BE QUITE VARIABLE DUE TO
THE SHOWERY NATURE OF THE EXPECTED PRECIPITATION. ISOLATED
RAINFALL RATES UP TO ONE HALF INCH PER HOUR WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH
