LOS ANGELES (FOX 11) - A fall storm is causing slick conditions on Southern California freeways but isn't expected to generate enough rain to trigger mudslides or debris flows on hillsides charred by recent fires.
Forecasters said Wednesday that most areas will see light showers accompanied by gusty winds as the system moves in from the Pacific.
More than an inch of rain could fall before the skies clear on Thursday, but forecasters said the threat of mud flows in burn zones is minimal.

Drivers are urged to use caution on mountain roads, where snow is coming down.
Light rain is also falling in Northern California.
