Mostly sunny skies should prevail through Saturday, when clouds will start to build to create a chance of rain and thunderstorms overnight. On Sunday, there will be a 30% chance of rain, according to the National Weather Service, which could spell more trouble for hillsides that reached their saturation point earlier this week when a powerful series of storms soaked the area. Officials have warned that even under sunny conditions, the hillsides remain vulnerable to movement, and advised property owners to be vigilant.

LA CRESCENTA — Fears over mudslides subsided early Wednesday after residents awoke to little more than a trickle of water flowing from burned hills. Just over 1.5 inches of rain fell in Glendale and about 2.2 inches filled a gauge positioned in Briggs Terrace since the storm began Tuesday afternoon, bringing little water down the hills, said Bob Gregg, a local water observer for the Los Angeles County Flood Control District. “It wasn’t a big deal,” Gregg said.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The prospect of a rainy weekend cheered at least one local resident Friday. Ethan Street, 5, said he likes the rain. "Because I can do puddle jumps," he explained. Also, wet weather sometimes leads to trips to a Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant. "That's where I spend time when the sky's not good," Ethan said. Lucky for Ethan and anybody else who likes the rain, a storm system was expected to reach the area today.

Times . By Thursday, snow is expected to blanket the mountains as low as 3,500 feet. L.A. County Public Works officials are closing segments of the Angeles Forest Highway and Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road starting at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

ARCADIA - What first started as a league showdown and a battle on the diamond turned into a rainy mess and an ultimate search for a rule book and league constitution. The Crescenta Valley High and Arcadia baseball teams met Friday evening intent on trying to create separation amongst themselves atop the Pacific League standings. Instead, the Falcons and Apaches are not sure if they'll be seeing more of themselves sooner or later and whether either is still in first place as Friday's game was called in the bottom of the eighth due to rain in a 4-4 tie. “We have to go look at the league book,” Crescenta Valley skipper Phil Torres said.

Re: “The Storm Watch Comedy Hour,” Read On column, March 1 . I was about to agree with Ray Richmond teasing newscasters about being overly dramatic about the rain. But then I went to the garage and some rainwater had seeped under the garage door and made a bit of a mess. So I was thinking maybe when the newscasters start talking on and on about the rain, we could use it to remind ourselves to prepare. For example, before the rain ever started I could have put cloth rags along the place where the garage door meets the floor, and then the rain wouldn't have gotten in. Once I saw the water, I did put some rags, but it would have been better to put them sooner.

The water is coming! The water is coming! Spectacular amounts of it! Quick, round up two of every animal and meet us at the ark at dusk. This thing that's bearing down on us is gargantuan! It's monumental! It's…it's…Stormageddon! If you were watching the television news in these parts, by midweek the stations were dutifully setting the catastrophic scene for StormWatch '14, the anchors breathlessly hawking team coverage of the coming deluge that was certain to wreak untold havoc on a parched metropolis.

Southern California braced for more rain -- and possible tornadoes and thunderstorms -- Saturday afternoon from a powerful Pacific storm that earlier prompted evacuations in several fire-ravaged hillside communities, the Los Angeles Times reports.  Those areas so far have managed to escape any major damage, but mandatory evacuation orders remained in place for parts of Glendora, Monrovia and Azusa. Early Saturday mud from an unstable hillside in Azusa oozed into the backyard of one home.

Good morning, 818 readers. Today is Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014. We're rounding up some of the top headlines in the region: A 55-year-old Los Angeles man was sentenced Wednesday to serve 25 years to life in prison for the deaths of a Glendale woman whose dismembered body was found in Mexico and another woman whose body has never been found. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge George Lomeli, who had previously viewed photographs of Esperanza Torio's dismembered body, called convicted killer Aurangzeb “Simon” Manjra's case “absolutely sickening” before sentencing him. Police cited more than two dozen motorists Wednesday during an undercover operation aimed at those who failed to stop for pedestrians.
