More Cold Weather Headed for Southern California

Another Pacific cold front will glide into the California coast today and generate high winds and light precipitation in the Southland on Tuesday, forecasters said.

The front will move into the Central Coast this afternoon and spread rain south to Ventura and Los Angeles counties overnight, according to a National Weather Service advisory.

Precipitation will be light, with the chance of rain diminishing Tuesday afternoon, but strong winds, gusting as high as 50 miles per hour, are expected, particularly in mountain areas and the Antelope Valley, NWS forecasters said.

The snow level will start out above 6,000 feet tonight but drop down to the 3,500-4,000-foot level Tuesday, although snow accumulation will be light -- no more than two inches, they said.

The NWS forecast drizzly weather today and highs of 45 on Mount Wilson; 57 in Palmdale; 58 in Lancaster; 59 in Saugus; 61 in Burbank; 62 in Long Beach, Anaheim, Avalon, Pasadena, San Gabriel, Woodland Hills and at LAX; and 63 in Newport Beach and downtown L.A.

Temperatures will be around the same Tuesday, when rain and snow are forecast, and dip a few degrees on Wednesday amid sunny weather, according to the NWS. The next bout of rain after Tuesday is expected Sunday.
