 More rain is headed to Southern California as a new storm approaches Thursday night into Friday, the National Weather Service says.

The storm is expected to hit the West Coast on Thursday and push across Southern California on Friday into the evening, bringing snow and strong winds to the mountains.

Steady rain and snow will turn into showers Friday night in the mountains, the weather service said. Snow levels will average 4,500 feet to 5,500 feet and will likely affect Interstate 5 over the Grapevine during the busy Friday evening commute.

In addition to the snow, strong south to southwest winds of 25 mph to 35 mph with gusts to 55 mph are expected to develop late Thursday and Friday in some areas.

Temperatures are expected to be in the 50s Thursday in the L.A. Basin.
