The first rain of the season brought slick roads to many of Southern California’s freeways Monday morning.
A weak cold front was responsible for light showers moving into the region overnight, according to the National Weather Service.
The rain was expected to mostly fall during the early morning hours before tapering off Monday afternoon.
Gusty west to southwest winds were then likely to pick up, especially across the mountains and Antelope Valley, the Weather Service stated.
Several crashes were reported along the rain-slickened freeways as commuters made their way to work Monday morning.
A multi-vehicle crash on the eastbound 91 Freeway in Long Beach prompted the temporary closure of all lanes just before 2 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
A big rig jackknifed on the 110 Freeway in University Park about 1:22 a.m., resulting in a SigAlert for the closure of three southbound lanes.
Another vehicle overturned on the southbound 170 Freeway in North Hollywood about 1:10 a.m.
The cool, wet weather isn’t expected to last long however, as temperatures downtown are expected to climb to near 100 degrees by midweek.
