Cold snap hits Southern California; rain might be coming

November 15, 2009 |  7:59 am

Southern Californians are feeling a nip in the air as temperatures drop and the wind kicks up in some hillside areas.

Temperatures dropped into the 40s overnight -- and to below freezing in the Antelope Valley. The National Weather Service says temperatures will warm to the 60s or low 70s today,  then drop tonight.

There is a chance of rain later this week, perhaps by Thursday.

The NWS issued a wind advisory, with gusts of up to 45 mph for the mountain regions of L.A. County. The advisory is in effect until 11 a.m. today. A freeze warning was issued for the Antelope Valley, where temperatures are expected to fall into the 20s tonight.
