Traffic slows to a crawl for one of the last groups of vehicles to get across the Grapevine near Gorman
The Grapevine was reopened Monday evening after being closed because of snow, the California Highway Patrol said.

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.
