Los Angeles will not be spared during this 'once-in-10-year storm'

Written by

You may have heard about this "once in 10-year storm" that's set to hit California starting this weekend. Thankfully, the majority of it will be hitting Northern California, but that doesn't mean Los Angeles is going to get off so easy. 

A phenomenon known as an atmospheric river will be bringing rain to Southern California starting Saturday morning. National Weather Service meteorologist David Sweet told the Daily News that there's a 50 percent chance of rain on Saturday, with a half-inch of water expected. While there is set to be a break on Sunday, don't forget your umbrella at home at the start of the work week—Monday's forecast is calling for a half-inch of rain in DTLA alone, and Wednesday may be wet as well. Temperatures will hover in the low 60s throughout Los Angeles County today and Saturday before rising slightly on Sunday. 

With all this rain in the forecast and the cold temperatures (okay, cold for Angelenos), what is one to do? Well, lucky for you, we have an entire guide to enjoying Los Angeles on a rainy day. And even better, our top pick's for this weekend's things to do are mostly indoor activities. And since the storm is set to let up on Sunday, you won't have any excuse not to strip down to your skivvies for the No Pants Subway Ride. If that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, we suggest heading to LACMA to nab a selfie with the yellow spaghetti string installation before it's gone for good.
