More snow, rain expected in Southern California this week

California

After a particularly wet week, Californians shouldn’t hang up their snow shovels and raincoats just yet.

Those in Southern California should expect 1 to 8 inches of snow to fall in the mountainous areas of Ventura and Los Angeles counties between late Tuesday and Wednesday night, said Kathy Hoxsie, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

Elsewhere in Los Angeles County, one-quarter to one-half of an inch of rain is forecast to fall, with 3/4 inches expected in the foothills, Hoxsie said.

This comes after 18 to 24 inches of snow fell at Mt. Baldy — whose levels mirror those of the San Gabriel Mountains — between Jan. 26 and 29, Hoxsie said, helping make up for what has been a particularly dry winter. Mt. Wilson saw 7 inches of snow at 5,700 feet.
