The Rain Will Keep Coming This Week
The rain that blanketed L.A. on Saturday has tapered off, but is likely to return tonight and continue into Monday.
Some areas in SoCal may get snow at elevations as low as 2,500 to 3,000 feet.
Adam Roser, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said Big Bear will get six-to- eight inches of snow, and towns nearby could get even more.
“Places just to the west of Big Bear, or Lake Arrowhead, will probably see a foot, maybe more,” he said.
The rain is expected to be periodic on Monday night and Tuesday — “probably a beautiful day to go see the snow in the mountains,” said Roser — and return at its heaviest on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, when total rainfall could hit two inches.
Experts are advising residents to drive with extra caution, particularly through higher elevations, and to expect snow and ice on mountain highways such as the Grapevine and the Cajon Pass.
