After a week of rain, Southern California will have a clear, sunny and crisp weekend.

The National Weather Service forecast sunny conditions with highs in the low 60s today. Similar conditions are expected Sunday. Clouds will move in Monday, with a 50% chance of rain Tuesday.

Sunny skies are forecast to return by Thursday.

One of the biggest beneficiaries of the storms were local ski resorts, which got huge amounts of snow. Big Bear and other San Bernardino County spots received nearly 5 feet of snow since Sunday. Mountain High and Wrightwood got 4 feet and Mt. Baldy (elevation 8,600 feet) saw 7 feet.
