The National Weather Service forecasts that the storm system could be felt as early as Tuesday afternoon and extend through Wednesday; the rains could be more intense than during the recent atmospheric river

After a dry and cool weekend, a new storm system threatens to bring more rain to Southern California .

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) , the storms could dump heavy rainfall between Tuesday and Wednesday in different areas of the region.

The specialists' forecasts mentioned that the new storm system, which is expected to be more intense than the atmospheric river registered between Thursday and Saturday, could be felt from Tuesday afternoon, with rains of between 3 to 5 inches in the valleys and mountains, as well as 1 to 3 inches on the coasts .

Strong gusts of wind, between 25 to 35 miles per hour, and gusts of up to 60 miles per hour are expected in the mountains.

Meteorologist Kristan Lund told the LA Daily News that in Los Angeles, the eastern San Gabriel Mountains may bear the brunt of the storm system, with rainfall of between 3 and 6 inches .

Rainfall could extend into Wednesday night , with clearer conditions with cool temperatures forecast for Thursday and Friday.

California still has not recovered from the intense winter storms that began to hit the state at the end of December and during January, in addition to a strong atmospheric river that hit from Thursday night and lasted until Saturday morning, causing severe havoc in the north and center of Californian territory.

In the Inland Empire, up to less than a half-inch of rain was recorded through Saturday night, as the precipitation became less intense in southern California.

In Monterey County, central California, a levee failure on the Pajaro River late Friday caused severe flooding that forced evacuation orders for residents .

During winter storms, the mountains of San Bernardino County were among the areas hardest hit by heavy snowfall that stranded dozens of residents and visitors for more than a week.

The San Bernardino County Fire Department said no new damage or flooding was reported.

Department spokesman Eric Sherwin said most roads were reopened for residents and non-residents as of 10:00 p.m. Saturday , although closures were still in place between Crestline and Lake Arrowhead, in the area known as "The Narrows” due to landslides.

Sherwin mentioned that ski resorts in the county would remain open this Sunday.

Other communities, like Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga, got about an inch of rainfall on Friday.
