Rain and snow are expected to return to Southern California this weekend, but forecasters say neither will be as heavy as earlier this week. The new storm is expected to arrive late tonight, with intermittent rain in the coastal valleys and snow above 7,000 feet in the Tehachapi, San Gabriel and San Bernardino mountains. Forecasters say scattered rain and snow showers should continue through Sunday and possibly into Monday.

Asked to assess the situation around the state in light of all the snow that fell earlier this week, Bob Roberts, executive director of the California Ski Industry Assn., responded via e-mail: "Blessed are the righteous for they shall receive seven feet of very dry snow. The gods have scored with another dandy storm just before a major holiday [Presidents Day] weekend." Perhaps, but the gods seemed to have overdone things a bit this time, especially in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Two men were plucked off storm-lashed Mt. Wilson by a county fire helicopter crew Wednesday after being trapped in their snowbound car for two days, authorities said. Harry Forker, 45, and Gregory Hickey, 38, who relied on their car heater to keep warm, were airlifted to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena about 5:47 a.m. in good condition, county fire inspector Ed Martinez said.

A powerful Alaskan storm pummeled Southern California with destructive winds, drenching rain and snow up to 6 feet deep Tuesday, downing trees and power lines, flooding low-lying areas and bringing traffic to a standstill. Hail was reported Tuesday night in several communities, including Santa Monica; snow fell in La Crescenta; and lightning struck two jetliners approaching Los Angeles and Burbank.

A fierce winter storm dumped heavy rain and snow that snarled highways across the coastal valleys and inland mountains of Southern California on Monday, and forecasters said there is more on the way today and Wednesday. As much as 3 inches of rain could fall in parts of the Southland today, tying up commuter traffic for the second day and posing the threat of floods and mudslides where the ground is saturated.

After a burst of sunny, warm weather last week, Angelenos had to bundle up and dig out their umbrellas Sunday as temperatures plummeted and rains pelted the county. Two storms, the first arriving Friday and the second Sunday, cast a pall over the region. Steady rains started Sunday afternoon. The heaviest rainfall is not expected to let up until late today, meteorologists said.

The first of two wintry Pacific storms swept into Southern California late Friday, bringing the likelihood of substantial rain and snow that should last, off and on, through Wednesday. Forecasters said the two storms could drop more than 2 inches of rain in the area, with about twice that much in foothill communities, before things start drying out Thursday.

Rain-weary Southern Californians may wake up to more wetness this morning, but take heart: The cold Pacific storm that arrived Friday and snarled traffic with rain and blanketed low-lying foothills with snow is the last one forecast for a while. The storm, the second to hit the area in three days, dumped more than half an inch of rain in much of Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties. Isolated lightning and thunder were reported.
