A fierce Pacific storm is expected to pound the Santa Clarita Valley through tonight with intense rainfall, wind gusts and possibly a thunderstorm, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather service estimates Southern California coastal and valley areas to receive one to three inches of rain through tonight. The foothills and mountains could receive two to five inches.

A storm of this magnitude could mean flash flooding even to non-burn areas, according to a statement issued by the weather service.

Wind gusts of over 60 mph are possible in the Santa Clarita Valley through this afternoon, forecasters predict.

Dangerous winter weather conditions are expected in the mountain areas, with the snow level hovering at 5,500 feet this morning, and dropping to 4,000 feet by this evening.

Forecasters expect the Santa Clarita Valley to see a high near 52 today. A 50 percent chance of showers and a high of 54 is forecasted for Tuesday. Mostly clear skies and warmer temperatures are expected for the remainder of the week.
