Patricia Costa, of Canyon Country, protects herself from a light drizzle as she walks near the corner of Jakes Way and Fahren Court on Monday afternoon. The National Weather Service forecasts more rain for today and Wednesday.


Scattered showers and possible thunderstorms are expected today after a wet Monday in the Santa Clarita Valley, forecasters said.

With moisture from rain and thunderstorms over the weekend, a large, low-pressure system rolled in, bringing with it the bad weather, said Stuart Seto, weather specialist for the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

“This low pressure is creating the drizzle all along the coast and inland, and is going to lounge over us, probably into Thursday before it moves out of the area,” Seto said.

Seto said residents should expect isolated thunderstorms today, possibly into Wednesday.

On Monday, some Santa Clarita Valley residents were caught off guard.

Noah Heeter sat beneath an umbrella outside Pete’s Coffee in Valencia with a few friends, keeping dry and warm.

“It was a surprise to me this morning,” said Heeter, who wore shorts, a sweatshirt and a baseball cap.

Kaylan Lopez and Vicky Solorio, of Newhall, welcomed the light sprinkle.

“It’s better than being all sweaty, humid and sticky like it was over the weekend,” said Solorio.

Lopez said they’re never sure what to wear in the morning with the unexpected weather.

“We just bring a sweater with us just in case,” she said.

There’s a 50-percent chance of showers today with an expected high near 66 degrees, according to a National Weather Service forecast.

As for the weekend, Santa Clarita Valley can expect the sun and warm temperatures to return by Friday, meteorologist Eric Boldt said.

“After Thursday, things will be improving quite a bit,” Boldt said. “Friday temperatures will be in the low 80s and into the weekend we expect to be well into the 80s and lower 90s.”
