Southern California is getting a dose of spring showers as the first in a series of storms creeps in to the L.A. basin. 

Scattered showers and light rain are expected through Wednesday morning. Up to two inches could fall in the foothills area, where the risk of mudslides is elevated in wildfire burn areas.

There's also a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms, the National Weather Service's Stuart Seto told KPCC. Angelenos should also expect a significant dip in temperature, as the region is set to experience 60-degree chills. 

"Be prepared for colder weather. It will all be below normal... as you can see, about 10 degrees below normal for the downtown area," Seto said.   

The storms will not be as significant as those in January and February, which dropped enough rain and snow to make a dent in the state's drought.
