Rain, snow to return to Southern California
The low-pressure system is also expected to bring 2 to 5 inches of snow to the San Bernardino County mountains, at elevations as low as 3,000 feet.
Local ski resorts were already reveling in snow that fell Monday night. Bear Mountain reported 2 to 3 inches of natural snow overnight, while Mountain High saw 1 to 2 inches.
Once the Wednesday storm leaves, be prepared for warmer-than-normal weather and blue skies through the rest of the workweek, forecasters said. Highs near 70 are expected in Los Angeles on Thursday and Friday, up from near 60 on Wednesday.
However, forecasters also warned of strong winds Thursday, coming from the northeast below the Cajon Pass and near the Santa Ana mountains.
