Rain from a major atmospheric river storm moved into Southern California this morning, causing minor flooding during the morning commute and concerns about greater destruction. As of 5:30 a.m., weather officials said the rainfall in Los Angeles County had “caused widespread urban, roadway and small stream flooding.”

Rainfall totals had already reached an average of 1 to 2.5 inches across much of L.A. County, with some places already over 3 inches. Weather is expected to clear late Friday and Saturday. Heavy rain is expected for Sunday through Monday most likely result in additional flooding with delays and closures.

Currently a portion of a major freeway that connects to the Los Angeles /Long Beach Port terminals is temporarily closed to drivers. All port operations are expected to be affected.
