Drivers on some mountain and pass roads should use extra caution Monday morning due to cold weather and snowy conditions, officials said.

The storm that moved though the region on Sunday caused the snow level to drop to 4,000 feet, and officials warned of snow accumulations and ice on roads. Interstates 5 and 15 remained opened this morning.

Snow showers are possible through mid-morning, with wind gusts topping 50 mph, forecasters said.

Clear skies are expected over the Los Angeles basin this week, with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s.
