There's a chance of showers and thunderstorms Friday through Mother’s Day Sunday.
NBC4 Meteorologist Shanna Mendiola said an area of low pressure is moving in from Nevada, making the first round of rain heavier over the deserts and mountains. That means there will be chances of lighter rain over lower elevations.
The chance of measurable precipitation is 50 percent Friday in Los Angeles and in Orange County but 70 percent in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Although there will be four days of occasionally wet weather, with brief heavy downpours and small hail and some roadway flooding, Shanna Mendiola said weather dries out Monday with slight warming into the new work week.
Between a tenth of an inch and a half-inch could fall along the coast and in the valleys and between a half-inch and two inches in the mountains.
But the May Gray won't last forever.
Monday is forecast to be sunny, with no precipitation in the forecast as of this morning.
Thunderstorms are forecast in Orange County Saturday amid higher temperatures than today and partly cloudy skies Sunday amid still higher temperatures, with the highest expected to be 75 in Fullerton and Anaheim.
