A winter storm watch will be in effect Saturday afternoon through late night, advised the National Weather Service today. That means get your boards out as "there is a potential for a combination of significant snow, strong winds and dense fog that may impact travel," they said. The first snow could fall on the northern slopes of local mountains in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties and could lower snow levels from 5500 to 3500 feet by late Saturday. But snow up there can be mean rain down here in the city. Not only that, add in the possibility of 30 to 45 MPH wind with gusts up to 60 MPH. If you're driving over the grapevine tomorrow, beware: the 5 Freeway in Frazier Park could have "near white out conditions."
