High Water Warning for Los Angeles

High Water Warning for Los Angeles

An ‘abnormal,’ monsoon-like weather pattern hits Southern California this week. Why it’s so unusual isn’t yet known, but it’s bound to be one of the weather stories of the summer.

The weather forecast for the next few days: hot and humid, with the threat of some showers and thunderstorms. But don’t worry, the forecast isn’t for a particularly bad week. If you’re planning any outdoor activities, it looks very much like a typical summer weekend.

What to know now:

So, what’s the cause of the unusual weather? It’s been called a “monsoon-like” pattern with extremely dry air in the Southwest, which is known for producing some of the largest, longest, and deadliest thunderstorms of the year.

We’re still looking for answers, and we hope that we’ll know better in the coming days. Meanwhile, be sure to bookmark our coverage for the latest updates.

What to know now:

On Wednesday, the National Weather Service issued a “high water” warning for the Los Angeles area from the beaches and mountains to the north, through Riverside County.

The warning is meant for high water from the sea, which can cause flooding in homes, businesses, and even the beaches.

The warning goes into effect at 5 p.m. Wednesday and expires at noon Friday. If you live north of Santa Monica, you don’t have much time to run around in a panic.

But if you live south of Santa Monica, you should probably go ahead and leave the area, because the warning lasts only for the next 24 hours.

This is a rare warning issued by the National Weather Service, which may be unusual, but it’s also not unprecedented.

Last year, the weather service issued a high water warning until noon on June 19 for Riverside County and Orange County, which included some places just south of Santa Monica County, including the beaches and the Santa Monica Mountains.

But there was reason to be optimistic, as some rain was forecast for June. This time, that water threat is gone for the year.

What to know now:

The water warning for the Los Angeles area expires at noon Friday.
