The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for the mountains of Los Angeles County.

The weather service predicted rain and possible thunderstorms at lower elevations Sunday through Monday, with showers continuing through Tuesday. The storm system could bring 8 to 10 inches of snow above 5,000 feet in Los Angeles County and 3 to 5 inches above 4,000 feet in Ventura County.

Motorists may encounter winter-like driving conditions on Interstate 5 near the Grapevine, Interstate 14 through Soledad Canyon, and Highway 33 through the Ventura County mountains. Lower elevations may see heavy rain Monday.

The weather service warned of a potential for flooding in the San Gabriel Valley because of drainage problems caused by debris from the recent windstorm in the area.
