Showers expected overnight with a slight chance on Wednesday morning

The rain that was supposed to start falling early Tuesday is still coming.

It's just going to get here a few hours later than first thought.

The showers should start by mid-evening and continue off and on into the early hours of the morning.
There is an 80 percent chance of rain on the Westside from a weather system moving into the area and there could be some low-level snowfall, too.

Cold air coming with the storm could drop the snow level to 2,000 feet overnight, the National Weather service said, causing concerns for travelers planning to head into the high country, including I-5, Highway 33 south to the Cuyama Valley and other routes.

At 4 p.m., the California Highway patrol was reporting rain on Highway 99 north of Seventh Standard Road and the rain was getting heavier to the north.

National Weather Service radar showed another band of rain moving into northwestern Kern County about the same time.

The showers are expected to taper off by Wednesday morning but there is still a chance (30 percent) in the morning before 10 a.m.

After that, the weather will be partly cloudy and cool, with a high Wednesday around 52 followed by an overnight low near 37.
