Grapevine reopens after being shut down because of snow
The agency reported snow and rain across Southern California highways Monday afternoon.
Snow even fell at lower elevations; the CHP reported snowfalls Monday afternoon at the 605 and 210 freeways in Duarte.
The National Weather Service said the wet, cold weather was being caused by a winter storm expected to last into Monday night.
Snow was expected to fall as low as 2,500 feet. The agency said 6 to 12 inches of snow cold fall at elevations above 5,000 feet.
