A storm dropped rain across Southern California overnight, making for a slick Thursday morning commute.

The California Highway Patrol has already reported a spike in accidents and issued at least three SigAlerts.

Rain arrived on-shore overnight, and radar showed a large band of showers stretching from the Central Coast to San Diego early Thursday, marking the first round of wet weather expected to continue through the weekend, NBC LA reported.

Rain is forecast for most of the Los Angeles-area through 10 a.m. and there is a 90 percent chance of precipitation through the day. Showers will remain in the forecast through the weekend.

The rain has been mostly light, but steady, with most areas seeing about half-an-inch of rain by  6:00 a.m. El Segundo near LAX reported 0.47 inches of rain, and so did Castaic, while downtown Los Angeles reported .53 inches.
