    Forecasters are calling for more rain and work crews are busy shoveling muck out of drains to prepare. Annette Arreola reports for the NBC4 News at Noon on Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014. (Published Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014)

    Another storm set to drop rain onto Southern California Thursday and Friday will be intense but short-lived, potentially triggering flash flood advisories and snow.

    Los Angeles County Public Works crews started working with heavy equipment in the Glendora area on Tuesday to clear debris basins to get ready for the storm.

    The storm could bring 1 to 2 inches of rain in the metro area and possibly damaging winds in the mountains, where snow is expected at elevations of 5,000 feet or more, according to the National Weather Service.

    Strong winds could also cause problems by knocking over trees or power lines. A high wind watch will be in effect Thursday afternoon and Thursday night in the San Gabriel and San Bernardino mountains.
