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.

The most recent storm, which began about 6 p.m. Saturday, continued into the early morning hours on Sunday before it dissipated, giving way to a cool, cloudy day. Flood advisories were in effect in the Station fire burn areas, including La Crescenta, La Cañada Flintridge, Tujunga and Sunland until 3 a.m. Sunday.

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.
