Surprise Storms Drop Heavy Rain

A surprise downpour hit parts of the Southland late this afternoon as heavy rain triggered flash flood warnings. The muggy monsoon-like weather could be felt from San Dimas where there was thunder to the Antelope Valley where heavy downpours filled streets and splashed against our camera up in SKYFOX.

Lancaster resident Leticia Moreno says, "it was pretty awesome. It was like monsoon type weather. Came down real quick and then it stopped."

It came down so quick that it puddled up along Avenue L between 60th and 90th. Windy too... tumbleweeds could be seen bouncing around.

Because the National Weather Service thought these cells would be very slow in moving they issued they issued flash flood warnings that tend to carry with them instructions to be prepared to move to high ground, but, it never seemed to get that threatening. Just made driving, along roadways like the Pear Blossom Highway a little anxiety provoking. But, to Leticia Moreno the rain was a really good thing. She said "I love it. We need it."
