Southern California's summer is ending cloudy, cool and damp.
Showers and drizzle have fallen around the region Thursday, and the National Weather Service says some locations have received up to a quarter-inch of rain but most other areas range from a trace to a few hundredths of an inch.
It's the result of a cold, upper-level trough dropping south along the West Coast.
Clearing should follow, along with gusty winds, especially in the mountains and deserts.
The autumn equinox occurs at 1:02 p.m. Friday.
Next week should see a warm-up in Southern California as winds turn weakly offshore.
