Wind gusts up to 45 mph were reported in Los Angeles and Ventura counties as a cold front moved across the region Monday night, forecasters said.

The winds were expected to weaken by Tuesday morning, but snow levels could fall as low as 3,000 feet and create problems for drivers along the Grapevine and California 14, the National Weather Service said.

By Monday night, less than 2 inches of snow had been reported near the Tejon Pass on the Grapevine, the weather service said.

Low temperatures in some areas were expected to be in the upper 20s and low 30s, according to the weather service.

At Los Angeles International Airport, 45-mph wind gusts were reported Monday evening. Gusts of 45 mph were also logged at Camarillo and Oxnard airports.
