Winter storm warning canceled, but chilly temperatures to linger

The National Weather Service has canceled a winter storm warning for the Los Angeles and Ventura county mountains, though officials said snow could still accumulate at higher elevations, including roadways like the Grapevine on Interstate 5.

David Sweet, a meteorologist for the weather service in Oxnard, said there was a chance of scattered showers for the rest of Sunday, but that precipitation would begin to taper off, giving way to a still chilly and gloomy but dry Monday.

“We expect mostly cloudy skies Monday in the L.A. area with temperatures in the mid 50s to early 60s,” Sweet said. “It’ll be warming up slightly, but we won’t see a return to the 70s until Wednesday.”

He said Tuesday should turn sunny but temperatures should linger in the 60s. Sweet added that there was a “slight hint” of another storm arriving next weekend, but that it was too early to tell for sure.
