A spring storm is moving out of Southern California but it's scattering showers and making roads slippery for the morning commute.

Several big-rigs have jackknifed on slick roads, snarling traffic on the I-5, 134 and 210.

Rain from a Pacific front began hitting the region late Wednesday, dropping about a third of an inch in downtown Los Angeles.

The low-pressure region is moving northeast but the National Weather Service says it could bring a few showers before departing.

Winds with gusts of 45 mph or more could hit the deserts in the afternoon.

Things will be better Friday will be mostly sunny with warmer temperatures.
