Snow fell across local mountains, causing the Grapevine to be closed for part of Monday. Scattered showers, hail and powerful wind gusts were also reported in the L.A. basin.

The National Weather Service is predicting cold temperatures early Tuesday with some areas experiencing sub-freezing conditions.

A freeze warning was issued for the interior valley of Ventura County from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. Temperatures were expected to range from 26 degrees to 29 degrees, according to the weather service.

Elsewhere in Southern California, daytime temperatures are expected to be below normal, but rain and clouds will give way to mainly sunny skies, the weather service said.
