Southern California could see some scattered showers Sunday through early Tuesday, forecasters said.

Less than half an inch of rain is expected in much of of the region, with the most widespread precipitation predicted on Sunday night. Rain will be heaviest away from the coast, but light in the Inland Empire, according to the National Weather Service.

The agency forecast much colder weather on Sunday compared to Saturday, with highs estimated to be about 10 to 15 degrees cooler.

“Break out those sweaters and jackets!” NWS tweeted.

Travelers through mountain passes should brace for powerful winds and wet roads starting Sunday afternoon through Monday, NWS warned.

Northeast winds are expected to gust about 50 to 60 mph in Los Angeles, Ventura and San Bernardino county mountains, according to the Weather Service.

That could affect motorists on major thoroughfares including the 5 Freeway and State Route 14 in L.A. County, forecasters said.

“Plan on slippery road conditions,” NWS said. “Very strong winds could cause extensive tree damage.”

One to 3 inches of snow could drop at levels as low as 2,500 feet in L.A. and Ventura counties. Antelope Valley could receive a trace to 1 inch of snow.

Meanwhile, heavy snow is expected in San Bernardino County mountains, particularly the Big Bear area, from noon Sunday through 4 a.m. Tuesday, NWS said.

Elevations between 3,500 to 4,500 feet could get 1 to 3 inches of snow, while places between 4,500 to 5,500 feet could be dumped with 3 to 6 inches of snow. Levels above 5,500 feet could receive 6 to 12 inches of snow, according to forecasters.
