Wintry Weather Brings Spring Snow to SoCal Mountains

Late spring wintry weather has brought rain, wind and snow to California, including a dusting of white on mountain peaks east of Los Angeles.

The National Weather Service says there were small accumulations of snow Monday in Southern California mountains.

To the north, winter-like weather is expected to return Monday night into Tuesday in the northern Sierra Nevada.

Among other notable weather events on Sunday, downtown Sacramento set a new mark for wettest May on record with an accumulation of 3.28 inches (8.33 centimeters) of rain.

Along the Eastern Sierra, Caltrans has lifted a ban on high-profile vehicles on part of U.S. 395 where big-rigs were overturned by winds Sunday.

Small craft advisories blanket the entire coast, with gale warnings for waters farther off Northern and Central California.
