SAN DIEGO (AP) - Southern California is starting the week with a warm and dry spell but that may change as subtropical moisture from former Hurricane Blanca off Mexico’s Pacific coast flows into the region.

The National Weather Service says a low pressure system approaching the region from the eastern Pacific will begin pulling in the moisture from now-Tropical Storm Blanca on Tuesday.

Forecasters say humidity will increase along with a chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms.

Heavy rainfall is possible in localized areas, mainly near the mountains.

Rainfall estimates range from a tenth of an inch to a half-inch.
