Cold Front Brings Rain, Snow, Gusty Winds

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) –More wintry weather has arrived in Southern California, as a cold front delivers a blast of rain, snow and gusty winds.

Overnight showers created slick and dangerous roads for commuters on Tuesday morning. The rain is expected to taper off, leaving behind chilly temperatures and gusty winds.

A wind advisory will be in effect from noon until midnight for the Antelope Valley, including Lancaster and Palmdale, as well as the Apple and Lucerne Valleys.

Similar advisories have been issued for the Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys, as well as the Ventura County coastal and interior valleys.

A high wind warning has been issued from 4 p.m. Tuesday through 7 a.m. Wednesday for the mountains of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Officials warn that people should be on the lookout for downed trees and power lines.

Driving conditions could also be hazardous for high-profile vehicles, particularly in mountain areas. Gusts up to 65 mph are possible in the Grapevine.

The cold front is expected to dump a few inches of fresh snow on the Grapevine Tuesday night, making for icy roads and reduced visibility.

Temperatures in the 60s are expected for the rest of the week, with a risk of rain returning Sunday and into Monday.
