A string of mild-mannered storms will continue moving through the Southland this weekend, keeping the streets slick for motorists.
The heavy weather action will be north of the Los Angeles Basin, according to ACCU-Weather expert senior meteorologist Ken Clark.
"It's not a big storm," he emphasized Friday.
The rough weather conditions should be restricted to the shorelines - including Ventura, Los Angeles and Orange counties - where high tides will create hazardous conditions, Clark said.
High tides from a huge Pacific swell - ranging from 4 to 12 feet - will be slamming into west-facing beaches throughout the weekend.
For most of today, there will be mostly cloudy conditions, but the rain will hit the area Saturday night.
Less than an inch of rain is expected, Clark said.

The storm fronts will keep the temperatures low throughout the weekend, with the highs registering 62 to 66 degrees on Saturday, dipping into the 54- to 58-degree range tonight.
The high Sunday will be between 62 and 66 degrees, Clark added.
The first of the successive four cold fronts to slide into the region from the Pacific made itself felt Wednesday.
Through Sunday night, the storms are expected to produce between a quarter and three-quarters of an inch of rain in coastal and valley areas, and between three-quarters of an inch and 1.5 inches in the foothills and mountains, weather forecasters said.
The snow level, meanwhile, will remain high - above 8,000 feet.
A high surf advisory that went into effect at 6 a.m. Wednesday will remain in force until 10 p.m. Sunday in Los Angeles County and until 1 p.m. Monday in Orange County, where waves of up to 12 feet are possible, forecasters said.
The surf conditions are being generated by two storms - one in the north-central Pacific, the other in the eastern Pacific.
"Surf and swell conditions will be hazardous to anyone entering the water this weekend, with dangerous rip current expected," a National Weather Service advisory warned. "Minor beach erosion and localized flooding of low-lying areas may also occur."
