Are you ready for a change?

California is expecting quite a bit of rain.

Southern California residents who live in burn scar areas from the recent wildfires are making early preparations to prevent potentially catastrophic mudslides.

LA public works crews were out today installing massive cement barriers and k-rails in strategic locations to direct runoff from the foothills.

The “La Tuna” fire burned the hillside in September, destroying any traction to slow the mud flow down.

Crews also installed barriers in Orange, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties.

We have beautiful weather around northern California right now, but it will get a lot more unsettled this weekend as a storm moves overhead. We can expect gusty wind, a big cooldown, and areas of light to moderate rain.
