LOS ANGELES — Forecasters say a powerful storm bearing down on Central and Southern California will lash the region with rain, pounding surf and gusty winds.

The National Weather Service says the storm will roll in Thursday evening and spread south through Friday, bringing an inch or two of rain in most areas but greater amounts in the foothills and mountains.

There's a chance of thunderstorms and brief but fierce downpours that pose a risk of floods and mudslides in areas scorched by wildfires.

Beginning Thursday, there could be winds gusting to 50 mph in the valleys and on the coast and up to 70 mph in mountains.

Some beaches could get 14-foot surf on Friday.

The weather should clear over the weekend but another front is headed south next week.
