A Pacific storm will bring low temperatures, rain and snow in the mountains in southern California from Sunday through Monday, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.
Rain will likely be throughout the area on Sunday night, with the heaviest rain falling between midnight Sunday and midday Monday.
They also forecast strong winds that can make conditions difficult to drive vehicles at higher elevations, and mountain resorts could receive significant snow Sunday through Monday.
Periods of moderate to locally heavy rain could result in a total of one-half inch to one inch for the coast and valleys, and 2 to 3 inches in the mountains.
Strong southerly winds will accompany the system, especially in the mountains, and temperatures will stay well below normal for the next week.
The threat of scattered showers will continue from Tuesday to Friday with a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.
