There's a chance of rain in Northern, Central AND Southern California (Los Angeles area) by early next week.
Hopefully you guys receive your first rainfall in LA area...

Last i heard it's more than a chance of rain.
I don't know about L.A. but here in the Santa Cruz mountains, we're supposed to get a lot of rain ... a couple of days ago they said 6-8 inches in the mountains!
It's not even the middle of October yet.
Patterns are disintegrating everywhere.

No. What's coming is the usual sacred SoCal drill:

When it rains, everyone is crying and monaing about how "it's not supposed to rain in SoCal". Waaahhhh...Where's the sun?????" It could be even as simple as overcast with just enough "rain" to make the air feel misty. Every single TV channel will be buzzing with urgent STORM WATCH '09 alerts, which of course will consist of the not-so-bright (but a perfect fit befitting LA's culture) meteorologists and anchors whining about the rain.

And then of course, when every single county south of Kern is ablaze and the Santa Ana's are roaring, the same people are likewise crying "We need rain!"

LOL HAHA you don't even know the half of it! In San Diego, that's multiplied like crazy! The people here claim to have the best weather yet you always hear; it's hot today, it's cold today, why is it cloudy? Why is it so windy? For a place that has "perfect" weather they sure gripe about it a lot lol.

When it rains here good lord! There are so many accidents on the freeways that they will actually make announcements on the radio that the CHP will no longer respond to minor accidents. There may be 200-300 finders benders in an hour or two here when it rains.

Actually most people here seem to like rainy days since it's a nice change from our normal, benign weather. If it's rains for more than 2 or 3 days in a row then some people start complaining but generally most people, including the weather reporters, seem to appreciate the rain b/c we usually need it.
