STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Forecast still on track for some of the coldest weather of the season for Southern California. A cold front will rip across the area for the next 24 hours.
However, there is very little moisture to work with on this system. So as the front approaches there will be a shot at some light showers, but that’s about it. The best chance for those showers will be later Tuesday night.
The big story will be the winds and cold air spilling into the region. Wind advisories and warnings kick in later Tuesday morning. Mainly those advisories cover mountain and desert communities. They last through Wednesday morning.
Snow levels could drop down to 3,500 feet once the front passes, but without moisture nothing will be sticking to the ground to cause travel issues.
After the passing cold front, there will be plenty of cold air in place and clearing skies. This will be the recipe for very cold early morning temperatures on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We are talking about lows at or below freezing in most valleys and the inland empire. Temps into the 20s for the high desert. There is another chance for a shower on Saturday as another wave pushes through.
Basin – mid 60s
Beaches -low 60s
Valleys – mid 60s
Mountains – upper 40s
Deserts – low 60s
