Cold front to bring showers, snow and high surf
The front will track south across the region Friday afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.
Showers should fall across the mountains and the Antelope Valley with a chance of thunderstorms and hail.
Conditions are expected to clear by Saturday night and remain dry through midweek.
A high-surf advisory is in effect for Southern California beaches with strong potential for rip currents, making for dangerous swimming conditions.
Surges of 3 to 5 feet are expected in Los Angeles County and 4 to 6 feet in Ventura County, Hoffer said.
