Several local Easter weekend festivities have been rearranged to accommodate the expected heavy rain as a potent storm system looms over Los Angeles and Orange counties. 

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued alerts, warning of the potential for significant precipitation and gusty winds throughout the weekend.

Despite the fluidity of the forecast, cooler temperatures and widespread precipitation are anticipated, prompting organizers to adjust event schedules accordingly.

City of South El Monte Takes Preemptive Action:

In response to the forecasted rain, the City of South El Monte swiftly rescheduled its ‘Eggstravaganza Egg Hunt’ from Saturday to Thursday night at City Hall.

Pasadena and Other Areas Follow Suit:

Pasadena announced the cancellation of its Egg Bowl and Bunny Brunch on Saturday, opting instead to reschedule the ‘Hop Into Spring’ event for Tuesday. 

The decision reflects a proactive approach to ensure the safety and enjoyment of participants amidst inclement weather conditions.

While specific rainfall amounts remain uncertain, the NWS advises residents to prepare for potentially heavy precipitation, particularly on Friday night and Saturday. 

Rainfall is expected to persist into Easter Sunday, with temperatures cooling and reaching the 40s at night.
