A rainbow, the result of scattered rains, crosses the Los Angeles sky in September, 2012.

Angelenos are finally getting a glimpse of Autumn weather as rain descends on the Southland. According to the National Weather Service, a cold storm system has moved over the region, impacting the area through Saturday.

The NWS warns that rain may lead to hydroplaning on roadways and frost or plant damage Saturday night. Snow may accumulate on Interstate 5 at the Grapevine on Friday and across other mountains in the area.

The gift of rain has already showered Santa Monica, Culver City and spots in the San Gabriel Valley. Precipitation is most likely to continue throughout the region today and tonight.

Meanwhile, our East Coast brothers and sisters can rest easy as a second storm that hit the area Wednesday in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy winds down.

Snow, rain and high winds caused a multitude of flight delays and cancellations, but most airlines are back to normal. A look at flightstats.com shows that United and American Airlines, which were adversely affected by the bad weather, have all flights scheduled for on-time departures at LAX.
