Showers fall on the SCV

Scattered rain showers soaked the Santa Clarita Valley on Saturday morning, and while there is a chance of rain today, skies in the valley should remain sunny for the rest of the week, forecasters said.

There’s a 20-percent chance of rain today with an expected high of 83 degrees, according to a National Weather Service forecast. The rain is being caused by a low-pressure system bringing moisture from Baja, Mexico, said David Gomberg, a meteorologist.

“Low-pressure systems create unstable air that helps create storms,” Gomberg said. “That’s why it has been warm and humid the last couple of days. It’s also why we’ve had a lot of lightning and thunder too.”

Event organizers at the city of Santa Clarita’s Festival of the Arts had to act quick to make sure artists didn’t get washed out by the rain Saturday in downtown Newhall.

CalArts student Ruah Edelstein, 33, was using chalk to draw a Santa Monica landscape on Main Street when rain started to pour.

“(Event organizers) gave us these huge plastic sheets to put over the art,” Ruah recalled. “It worked, but you can still see some small raindrops,” she said while pointing to her artwork.

Ruah said it rained for about 40 minutes.
