Here comes the rain

Wet weather predicted for weekend

Traffic moves steadily in the rain on the southbound side of the Golden State Freeway Thursday.

A steady cool rain Thursday sent cars skidding across slick Santa Clarita Valley roads, said Lt. Carrie Stuart of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.

Nearly 500ths of an inch fell by 3:30 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

Deputies blamed rain on two non-injury traffic collisions Thursday afternoon. A combination of water and oil sent a car sliding near the intersection of Robert C. Lee Parkway and Golden Valley Road at 3:28 p.m., Stuart said.

The rain fall prompted a warning from the Los Angeles County Health Department to stay clear of creeks, rivers and washes. Bacteria, large debris and trash pose a risk to health and life to those near the banks, according to a health department statement.

Santa Clarita Valley residents won't get a break.

A 90-percent chance of showers looms for Friday and the temperature will hover in the 50s, the National Weather Service forecasts.

The weather won't change much on Saturday as temperatures stay in the 50s with a 60-percent chance of rain.

Sunday will bring sunny skies and diminished chance of precipitation, according to the National Weather Service.
