Cloudy, chilly conditions Sunday are expected to give way to showers and a chance of thunderstorms Monday, with snow at higher elevations, the National Weather Service said.

Across the region Sunday skies will be mostly cloudy, with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s with overnight lows in the 40s, said David Sweet, a National Weather Service meterologist.

On Monday the forecast includes showers with a slight chance of thunderstorms and a high near 60.

In the mountains of Los Angeles County, wintry conditions are expected with a winter storm warning beginning Monday morning. Forecasters predict about six inches of snow at elevations higher than 5,000 feet.

But the cold and clouds will give way to sunnier conditions by Tuesday. By Wednesday and Thursday, highs will have warmed up into the 70s and lower 80s.
