LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Now that the rain and snow are winding down, a “big chill” is moving into Southern California.
Daytime temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees below normal through Sunday, and at night, it will be below freezing in the valleys, mountains and deserts.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Andrew Rourke says we’re in for a cold weekend.
“The big deal with this storm is the cold air. This is the coldest system of the season. We’re going to be having low temperatures on Friday morning, near freezing, Saturday morning, probably the coldest night of the year. Temperatures will be down into the mid-20s,” he told KNX1070’s John Brooks.
Along with snow in the mountains today, the wind is expected to gust as high as 60 miles per hour. Gusts could reach as high as 45 miles per hour in the valleys.
