Los Angeles, not known for its wet-weather driving ability, will be doused in up to two inches of rain this week, the most precipitation from a storm in nearly two years. The coast and valley areas are expected to see one to two inches of rain, while the mountains are expected to see as much as four inches of rain.
The rainstorm is expected to bring some much-needed water to the drought-stricken area, but will also have the side effect of bringing some unwanted roadway conditions. We’ve blogged extensively on safety for rainy weather, but it always bears repeating. The number of accidents in Southern California skyrockets during wet weather. Here are some tips on driving in the rain from Edmunds.
