LOS ANGELES -- More rain is expected to hit Southern California as a new storm system starts to make its way into the region this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Forecasters say rain is expected to begin overnight in some parts of mountain areas in Ventura and Los Angeles counties as the weather system moves southward from Monterey County. Gusty winds will also develop in those mountain regions as well as the Antelope Valley.

The storm system will continue to produce rain and snow in areas higher than 4,000 feet, causing hazardous driving conditions on Interstate 5 at the Tejon Pass. Blowing sand and dust across California 14 and 138 may cause near-zero visibility at times in the Antelope Valley.

Sunday is expected to be mostly cloudy across Southern California with a 40 percent chance of showers, forecasters said. Temperatures will range from the mid-50s to about 60 degrees.

Forecasters say scattered showers will continue into Monday morning for some parts of L.A. and Ventura counties, such as the foothills.
