California residents were greeted Monday with another coastal storm that will again bring heavy rain and likely result in flooding, mudslides and property damage.

The rain rolled into Southern California and was expected to continue through Wednesday, with the latest storm coastal storm to hit the state again being attributed to what meteorologists call an “atmospheric river.”

A flash flood warning is in effect for parts of western Los Angeles County including the Santa Monica Mountains, Hollywood Hills and Griffith Park and the San Fernando Valley.

Ventura County is also expected to get flash flooding.

Forecasters expect “much less rain” compared to that brought to the region earlier this month for a similar storm.
