First rain of season arrives

Cold front keeps area highs in 60s

Golden Valley junior Nick Herbts, 17, hides from a few drops during the Golden Valley football game versus Kilpatrick High School.

It was only a trace amount, but the Santa Clarita Valley got its first rain of the season when a weak storm passed through Southern California on Saturday.

Scattered light showers dotted the valley throughout the day and brought temperatures in the 50s and 60s.

The dark clouds were part of a big system in the Pacific Northwest, said Bonnie Bartling, weather specialist for the National Weather Service.

“We were lucky to squeeze out a little bit down here,” she said.

Areas like San Luis Obispo County and much of Northern California saw more rain from the storm.
“It was very light,” she said. “A weak system for us.”

The storm came with the start of the rainy season, which runs from October to April 30, she said.
Although a little bit of rain is typical for this time of year, most of the rain comes in January and February, she said.

But local residents shouldn’t get used to Saturday’s cloudy weather.

The National Weather Service predicts mostly sunny weather today with highs in the low 70s and winds up to 20 mph. The heat is set to return this week, Bartling said. Highs are expected to be in the 80s, the National Weather Service predicts.

“We’ll probably do a nice little flip flop,” Bartling said. “Get some nice heat going.”
