    Drier Weather for Los Angeles Late Week, Weekend

    A storm system that brought showers to Southern California Wednesday will move well east of the area late this week and bring much-improved weather in its wake.

    Sunshine will break out late in the week, but temperatures will remain on the cool side with highs in the 60s to low 70s.

    While the showers this system brought were light, it was enough to bring Los Angeles its first measurable rainfall since late July. Rainfall amounts across the L.A. Basin were mainly 0.10 of an inch.

    Snow levels fell to around 6,500 feet in the mountains across Southern California. Snow was reported at Big Bear late Wednesday into Wednesday night with some light accumulation.

    After winds gusted above 40 mph, winds will be much lighter across the mountains and high deserts late week and into the weekend.

    Temperatures will begin to moderate a bit over the weekend.

    For anyone with outdoor plans, the weekend will not disappoint as temperatures will rise into the 70s away from the coast and bright sunshine will prevail through Sunday afternoon.
