Storm headed toward SCV

A storm is expected to dump several inches of rain on Southern California today and Saturday.

For the Santa Clarita Valley, the National Weather Service has forecast rain after 10 a.m. today, with light winds and potential for a thunderstorm tonight.

And with more rain on the way, road damage from storms that hit Southern California last month will impair travel through the Angeles National Forest for weeks.

The California Department of Transportation says a long stretch of Angeles Crest Highway east of La Canada-Flintridge will be closed until late March.

The damage was caused by runoff from slopes burned by last summer's 250-square-mile wildfire in the San Gabriel Mountains.

The Los Angeles County public works department says closures also remain in effect for portions of Angeles Forest Highway and smaller roads. Access is limited to residents and contractors.

Saturday may also see thunderstorms, along with wind gusts up to 21 mph and rain lasting into the evening, according to the weather service.

In all, the weather service predicts the storm may dump up to 4 inches on foothill areas.

The forecast calls for a sunny Super Bowl Sunday.
