The National Weather Service on Tuesday night issued a snow warning, saying that moderate to locally heavy snowfalls were likely to hit Southern California mountains.

By Wednesday night, snow levels are expected to drop to about 3,500 feet, the Weather Service said. The most significant snowfalls will be Wednesday afternoon, with some areas receiving from 4 to 12 inches of new snow.

"As a result," the agency said, "Interstate 5 near the Grapevine will likely be impacted by accumulating snow."

Another storm is expected to bring snow and gusty winds to area mountains beginning Thursday afternoon, according to the Weather Service.
