...WET AND LOCALLY WINDY WEATHER TONIGHT INTO MONDAY...

MOISTURE ENTRAINED FROM THE REMNANTS OF TYPHOON MEGI OVER THE WEST
PACIFIC WILL MOVE OVER SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY. A
WEAK DISTURBANCE EMBEDDED IN STRENGTHENING NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL
HELP LIFT OUR ALREADY DEEP MOIST LAYER TO PRODUCE AREAS OF RAIN OVER
AND WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS TONIGHT INTO MONDAY. SHOWERS WILL TAPER
OFF MONDAY AFTERNOON AND MAINLY BE OVER THE MOUNTAINS.

RAINFALL TOTALS SHOULD RANGE FROM AROUND ONE TENTH OF AN INCH ALONG
THE COAST...TO ABOUT THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH ON COASTAL MOUNTAIN
SLOPES. HOWEVER...AMOUNTS CLOSE TO AN INCH ARE POSSIBLE WHERE
OROGRAPHIC LIFT IS MAXIMIZED. THE SNOW LEVEL WILL BE ABOVE
8000 FEET.

WINDS ALOFT AND ONSHORE FLOW WILL CAUSE LOCAL STRONG GUSTY WINDS IN
THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS LATE TODAY THROUGH MONDAY. MOST WIND GUSTS
WILL BE 25 TO 35 MPH BUT THERE WILL BE ISOLATED GUSTS TO NEAR
50 MPH...MAINLY IN THE HIGH DESERTS.

THE RAIN WILL MAKE ROADS SLICK AND MOTORISTS SHOULD USE EXTRA
CAUTION. FOG WILL LOCALLY REDUCE VISIBILITY TO LESS THAN A QUARTER
OF A MILE AT TIMES IN THE MOUNTAINS. THE STRONG GUSTY WINDS IN THE
MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS WILL MAKE DRIVING DIFFICULT...ESPECIALLY FOR
MOTORISTS WITH HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES.
