Showers, cold weather in Southern California
Wet, cold weather will continue through Saturday as a storm front moves across Southern California and drops a layer of snow in mountain areas, according to the National Weather Service.

The agency issued a snowfall warning Thursday night for San Diego County mountains. Four to 10 inches of snow could fall above 4,000 feet, according to the weather service.

In Ventura and Los Angeles counties, variable showers are expected to last through Saturday, with snow levels possibly falling as low as 3,000 feet on north slopes in the mountains.

"Some accumulating snow up to 1 inch or 2 with amounts to 3 inches will be possible in the mountains," the weather service said in a statement.

 The agency said high temperatures are expected to be 10 to 15 degrees below normal in many areas and up to 20 degrees below normal in the mountains.

On Thursday, about a quarter inch of rain fell in some foothill areas of the San Gabriel Mountains, according to the weather service.
