Forecasters say there's a chance of rain Monday in Southern California.

The National Weather Service says there's a 20 percent chance of rain during the day, and that increases to 40 percent at night.

"We have a weak storm system that's falling apart, basically, as it comes around Point Conception," said National Weather Service meteorologist David Sweet. "So, the chances of precipitation down in the Los Angeles area are not that great."

Showers could linger through Tuesday afternoon before sunny skies and rising temperatures return, he said.

A wind advisory is in effect starting at noon for the mountains in Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties.

Gusts are expected through Tuesday evening, said Sweet.
