A powerful storm system is expected to bring rain and potential thunderstorms today and Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

The bulk of the rainfall will probably hit overnight into Saturday, the service said.

There is also a 70 percent chance of rain on Saturday, Weather Service spokesman Bill Hoffer said.

The unstable Pacific storm system has the potential to bring more than an inch of rain, gusty winds and thunderstorms, Hoffer said.
Showers could dump more than 2 inches of rain over mountain areas and foothills, he said.

The snow level could fall as low as 4,000 to 4,500 feet by Saturday morning.

The Weather Service forecast temperature highs in the upper 60s today and upper 50s on Saturday. Lows will range in the 40s for both days.

"With these expected (rainfall) amounts and the possibility of thunderstorms, the possible threat exists for mud and debris flows around recent burn areas," said Hoffer, adding that the highest potential for that threat will occur tonight into Saturday.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works announced that based on forecasted weekend storms it intends to close public access to all county roads within the Station Fire burn area, which could include Acton, as of 4 p.m. today.

Light precipitation may linger to Sunday morning with partly cloudy skies.
