Storm moves out of L.A. area, but cold, icy conditions remain for now

January 3, 2011 |  6:18 pm

Winter storm warnings were canceled for Southern California as a powerful storm finally moved out of the region.

The National Weather Service said the mountains will remain icy overnight -- and officials described driving on mountain roads as "hazardous." More snow showers and gusty winds are expected overnight in mountain areas and passes, and perhaps in the high desert. The snow level should remain at about 1,500 feet.

But the L.A. basin will see temperatures slowly increase Tuesday, into the mid-60s with sunny skies.

The main routes in and out of region were open as of 6 p.m., including Interstate 5 and Interstate 15.
