Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Feb. 19)

STUDIO CITY ( — A storm is headed into the Southland Tuesday afternoon, bringing rain, wind and a possible thunderstorm.

Light rain is expected to last from the afternoon into the evening, dropping .25 to .75 inches.

The storm will generate plenty of snow, bringing in as much as 12 feet of ice at the resort levels. Snow could fall as low as the 2000-foot level and the Antelope Valley floor.

As the cold air moves in, there is also the possibility that snow could dust the Santa Monica mountain range.

There is a chance that the Southland could be hit with thunderstorms Tuesday night. Hail and water spouts over the channel are also possible.

The unstable weather should last until Wednesday morning and things should dry up shortly thereafter.

Temperatures should be in the upper 50s along the coast and basin, mid-50s in the valleys, low 50s in the desert and mid-30s along the mountains.
