Just before 2 p.m this afternoon, the first fall storm of the season rolled into Burbank with heavy rain, flashes of lightning, and crackling thunder. The high today only in the 60s.
For the past few days, rain has been in the forecast and the skies were filled with dark threatening clouds this morning– still some were caught without umbrellas when the raindrops began falling.
The rain forced most motorists to ease up off the gas pedal and that’s a good thing any time it happens. By 2:40 p.m. the rain had slacked up — but scattered showers remain in the forecast through tomorrow morning. Then, a warming trend kicks in over the weekend with 80 degree temps by Sunday.
