Angeles National Forest roads to close amid snow, ice

With a storm on the way, Los Angeles County officials warned of likely closures on roads leading into the Angeles National Forest shortly after midnight Monday.

The L.A. County Public Works Department said that based on the forecast of snow and icy road conditions, it would close the following roads at 3 a.m. Tuesday:

-- Angeles Forest Highway from Aliso Canyon Road to Angeles Crest Highway

-- Big Tujunga Canyon Road from Angeles Forest Highway to Vogel Flats

-- Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road from Angeles Forest Highway to Angeles Crest Highway

The National Weather Service is predicting a cold, windy storm will reach Southern California early Tuesday morning, bringing rain to much of the Southland and snow to the mountains.

The snow level is expected to begin at 4,500 feet and drop to 2,000 feet, according to the weather service. On Friday, the forecast had called for a foot of snow. On Sunday night, the forecast suggested the accumulation may be far less: 4 to 8 inches. 

Once the roads are closed, county officials warn, local access will not be permitted. The closures are to remain in effect until the storm system has passed and the roads have been inspected.
