A chance of showers will linger in the Santa Clarita Valley through the week following a cold front that moved through the area Wednesday night, dropping a small amount of rain.

Just .27 of an inch of rain had fallen in the Newhall Pass over the 24-hour period ending at noon today, the National Weather Service reported. Rainfall totals reached .14 of an inch during the same period in Saugus.

Another cold front is expected to move across the coastal and valley areas Friday and Saturday, bringing another round of rain and high-elevation snow, National Weather Service forecasters said.

Rainfall totals are expected to be similar to those experienced Wednesday night and today.

Travelers heading north on Interstate 5 last night were slowed by snow flurries, but the Grapevine was not closed as expected.

While precipitation totals were relatively low in the Santa Clarita Valley, the combination of the storm with the highest tides of the year resulted in flooding in some Southern California beach areas.

Huntington Harbor overflowed onto Pacific Coast Highway in Sunset Beach around 8 a.m. today, forcing the California Highway Patrol to close northbound lanes.

Similar flooding was reported around bay-front properties in Newport Beach and San Diego County.

Locally, scattered showers are possible through Sunday, with highs of 57 on Friday and into the 60s over the weekend, National Weather Service forecasters said. South to southwest are forecast to 20 mph Friday diminishing through the weekend.

The outlook for next week is mostly sunny with highs in the low 60s.
