Storm bearing down on Southern California

A strengthening storm system is expected to dump up to 13 inches of snow at higher elevations in Los Angeles County mountains starting tonight, and a winter storm warning will remain in effect above 5,000 feet Monday through Tuesday.

At lower elevations, a few inches may whiten the Antelope Valley foothills and thunderstorms could bring locally heavy rain Monday morning through Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service,

Drivers should expect wintry road conditions on Interstate 5 near the Grapevine, Highway 14 through Soledad Canyon, and Highway 33 through the Ventura County mountains.

Forecasters are predicting less than an inch of rain in coastal and valley areas and up to 1.75 inches in the mountains. The snow level will range from 3,000 to 4,000 feet.
