The National Weather Service has posted a flash flood warning for the burn areas of Ventura, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles Counties through Saturday afternoon, as well as high wind advisories and warnings for the same counties.

The much-needed rain is expected to remain fairly steady through Sunday, and potentially tapering off as late as Monday evening, bringing our parched landscape the most rain it’s seen since 2005.

If you still plan to brave the rain slash snow for some weekend outdoor activities, be prepared.

Me, I’ll be shuttering myself in my apartment and boarding up the windows to protect myself from the inevitable seven thousand car accidents that happen every time it drizzles in L.A.
