LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A cold storm will bring windy and wet weather to the Southland Thursday.
There is a high wind warning in effect until 10 p.m. as winds could increase to 60 mph.
The cold weather combined with light rain has caused snowfall in the San Gabriel Mountains.
The California Highway Patrol closed Interstate 5 through the Grapevine around 8 a.m. for almost two hours due to snow and icy conditions.
