LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A winter weather advisory, which signifies exceedingly challenging travel conditions, including roads covered by ice and snow, is in effect in the San Gabriel Mountains today because of a storm having only a negligible impact at lower elevations.
The advisory went into effect at 6 p.m. Wednesday and is scheduled to expire at 11 tonight.
The National Weather Service said up to 4 inches of snow would accumulate above 5,500 feet, and up to 2 inches across the Interstate 5 corridor as northwest winds gust at between 30 and 40 miles per hour.
The snow level will come down to around 2,500 feet this morning , generating a dusting of snow across the Antelope Valley foothills.
The weather service warned that hail or ice pellet showers are a possibility in the mountains but at sea level, there was only a 20 percent chance of measurable precipitation.
