Light to moderate rain is expected, off and on, for the rest of this week and early next week, increasing the chances of mud and rock slides in already sodden Southern California, forecasters said Monday.
"It's shaping up as a gloomy week," the National Weather Service said.
A low-pressure system will continue to spin periods of rain into Southern California beginning today and lasting into the weekend, the weather service said.
Computer models are indicating a potentially stronger storm late Sunday and Monday.
Forecasters don't expect any extended periods of heavy rain.
"However, with the ground already saturated from a very wet January, it will not take much more rain to cause additional problems, including rock and mud slides," the weather service said.
In downtown Los Angeles, total rainfall for the season, which began July 1, stands at 25.16 inches, almost three times the normal total for the date and more than six times the total that had fallen by this time last year.
