Severe weather hits the SCV

A sheriff's deputy works the scene of a traffic collision involving a Nissan pickup truck that struck a tree on Bouquet Canyon Road near Seco Canyon Road in Saugus on Thursday.

 

Hail fell in Canyon Country and gutters overflowed near Saugus High School on Thursday as thunderstorms pelted the Santa Clarita Valley with measurable precipitation and sent air temperatures plunging.

But the chill will be short-lived, National Weather Service forecasters said, with highs forecast to climb back to 80 degrees by Saturday and into the 90s Monday under sunny skies.

Temperatures dropped into the 50s around 3 p.m. Thursday as rain fell and thunder boomed across the Santa Clarita Valley, hitting Canyon Country hardest and touching off a mudslide on the northbound Highway 14 just south of Golden Valley Road.

Rainfall was recorded at .16 of an inch in Saugus during the 5 o’clock hour and .05 of an inch in Newhall during the same time.

Streets were overflowing with water around Saugus High School at 3:30 p.m., one resident said.

Temperatures were due to hit 70 degrees today under party sunny skies and dip to about 51 tonight, National Weather Service forecasters said.

But the weekend is due to bring a return to summerlike weather, with highs Saturday around 80 degrees and 88 degrees by Sunday. Nighttime temperatures will remain in the 50s.

On Monday, a high of 91 under sunny skies is forecast for Santa Clarita.
