Get your slickers out, Southern California. Friday is seeing some light rain in the region, and there's more to come over the weekend.

There's going to be a period of cool and "unsettled weather" over Saturday and Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. Highs will be in the 60s, with temperatures dipping slightly lower over by Sunday.

The weather service warned drivers to take care when traveling on rainy streets and freeways.

"Motorists should be alert for slick roadways due to the combination of oil and rainfall," the service said in a special weather statement.

Scattered showers are expected through Friday evening in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. On Saturday, a stronger cold front will sweep across the area, bringing steady rain by late morning or early afternoon, the weather service said.

On Sunday, a third and weaker cold front will move across Southern California. It's expected to bring only light, scattered showers.

The fronts will be moving from northwest to southeast, with heavier rainfalls in Santa Barbara County.

Los Angeles and Ventura counties will see significantly more rainfall than Orange County and the Inland Empire, with the latter areas expected to see only a chance of showers.

No major snowfall is expected, with the snow line expected to remain above 7,000 feet.

The sun is expected to return to the region's skies on Tuesday.
