Cold Snap Brings Record-Breaking Temperatures Across Southern California

A cold snap set record-breaking temperatures across Southern California Saturday.

Forecasters reported a low of 15 degrees in Lancaster early Saturday, breaking the 20-degree record set in 1955. Burbank saw temperatures dip to 35 degrees, a degree cooler than the record set in 1942.

Long Beach hit 40 degrees on Saturday as well, tying its 2007 record.

A low-pressure system that cleared skies brought lower than normal temperatures to Southern California, Stewart Seto from the National Weather Service said. A freeze warning overnight expired at 9 a.m. Saturday  for parts of the greater L.A. area.

The weather service issued a wind advisory for the rest of Saturday until 10 a.m. Sunday. Seto said winds could reach 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph. The advisory extends to 3 p.m. in the desert.

Snowfall could potentially blanket the Grapevine again, Seto said.

Angelenos could expect a brief reprieve as a high-pressure system moves through over the weekend, Seto said. Forecasters expected cooler than normal temperatures to return during the week, with some chance of rain.
