    Possible showers forecasted for Los Angeles this week aren’t expected to make a dent in the city’s seasonal rain numbers, according to the National Weather Service.

    There is about a 20-percent chance of rain late Thursday and early Friday, but it’s expected to bring only about one-tenth of an inch of precipitation to the city.

    “It’s not going to be anything that anyone is going to have to reschedule any plans for,” said meteorologist Mike Wofford.

    A scattering of sprinkles touched down on Southern California overnight, and the rare sight of rainfall prompted some to take to Twitter.

    "What is this water falling from the sky? i'm confused. #rain. #drops. #la. #drought. #wetakewhatwecanget." wrote Nathalie Gallmeier.

    The last measurable rainfall in Los Angeles occurred on Dec. 19, 2013, when just over one-tenth of an inch was reported in downtown.

    Wofford said it’s still unclear whether a weak weather system moving from the northwest will catch California on Sunday.

    “There is a very small chance of rain on Sunday,” Wofford said.

    Temperatures are expected to drop to the low 60s after a warm start to the week, officials said.
