Snow in Forecast for Mountains for First Time of the Season

An unseasonably cold low-pressure system is forecast to hit L.A. County this week and could bring snow as low as 7,000 feet in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Snow has crept into the Los Angeles County weather forecasts for the first time this fall.

Snow is forecast to potentially fall down to the 7,000-foot elevations of the San
Gabriel Mountains on Wednesday, as a cut-off low pressure system that is wobbling around the North Pacific comes ashore.

The storm has a mass of early-winter cold air high aloft, which could trigger unseasonable snowfall to the highest mountains Tuesday night through Thursday night, National Weather Service forecasters said.

Thunderstorms are slightly possible in the Los Angeles region by Wednesday night. Snow and rain accumulations are expected to be very light,

Until then, the immediate forecast calls for heavy clouds and possible drizzle early Monday and Tuesday.
