Rain, Rain To Go Away... But Snow Will Stick Around Today
If your iPhone alarm didn't fail you this morning, you probably woke up as scheduled to a gloomy-skied Monday, with some lingering rain. The rain, which was falling with the spirit of Rainpocalypse 2010 reborn as Rainpocalypse 2011 for most of yesterday, won't stick around though, and Southern California is expected to go back to our norm of sunny skies and mild temps tomorrow.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a slight chance of showers for the rest of today, but starting Tuesday we'll have clear skies and temps climbing back up from the low to mid-60s by the weekend.
While the rain isn't sticking around for the rest of the week, today the snow is sticking around lower elevations in the Los Angeles area. In the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita Valley "winter weather conditions" will persist today, as will the snow showers and gusty winds moving through many of the mountain ranges of Ventura and LA counties (though not in the Santa Monica Range). Snow levels will be at around 2000 and 2500 feet, though it could fall as low as 1500 feet in the Santa Clarita Valley.
The snow is affecting travel on many of our local highways; check with the Department of Transportation for closures and hazards before heading out.
