With two storms expected to hit Los Angeles and the surrounding Southern California region over the next few days, it could mean more headaches on the roads.

Monday's storm prompted the closure of the 5 Freeway over the Grapevine for nearly a full day. Luckily, it doesn't appear the impending storms will bring as much snow--that's good news for commuters, not so much for skiers. A National Weather Service representative told LAist that snow levels are expected reach 5,500 feet, a major difference to Monday's predicted 1,500 feet and about 1,000 feet the highest point in the Grapevine.

In other snow news, the warmer temperatures are melting it away from our views.
