‘Pockets’ of rain could reach SCV

Reports say the Santa Clarita Valley can expect a chance of rain into this morning. 

“There are little pockets of rain across Los Angeles,” Ryan Kittell, weather specialist at the Oxnard Station of the National Weather Service, said Sunday.

“One little band is moving to LAX from Catalina.”

The State Water Resources Control Board in Sacramento called California’s recent dry conditions an “epic drought” that called for “aggressive measures.”

According to the government website for the state of California, the state is facing one of the most severe droughts on record.

Governor Brown declared a State of Emergency back in January, urging state officials to “take all necessary actions to prepare for water shortages.”

Since then, state water officials say California’s water resources remain “critically low.”

The rainfall anticipated in Santa Clarita will likely appear in minimal amounts.

Kittell explained the rain pockets as moving in “isolated cells.”

“And if SCV does see rain, it won’t be a drought-buster,” Kittell said.
