LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A wind advisory remains in effect Tuesday as a cold storm system continues to sweep across Southern California.

According to the National Weather Service, the storm will bring a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day.

A 10th of an inch of rain is expected in metropolitan areas and the chance for thunderstorms is expected over coastal waters north of point conception, meteorologists said.

Gusty winds could prevent hazardous conditions for drivers as there is potential for trees and high power lines to topple over.

A small craft advisory will remain in effect until 3 a.m. on Thursday.

According to the NWS, between one and two inches of snow is expected to accumulate in the San Gabriel Mountains today.

Meanwhile, residents living in Riverside County could also see rain, gusty wind, possibly snow and cooler temperatures today.

A wind advisory for the San Gorgonio Pass near Banning and the mountains is scheduled to expire at 9 a.m., according to the NWS.

Forecasters said temperatures will remain around 10 degrees below normal, but mild with partly cloudy skies.
