According to the National Weather Service, a very cold storm system will initially bring three to five hours of moderate to heavy rain to Los Angeles County on Friday night. Heavy downpour, hail, gusty winds and waterspouts could are expected as well.
Preliminary snow estimates for this impending storm are one to two feet across the mountains with an elevation above 4,000 feet. Snow is also anticipated at lower elevations throughout Santa Clarita Valley, prompting warnings for drivers along the Grapevine as well as Highway 14.
According to the service, “This storm has the potential to bring some of the lowest snow levels we have seen in recent times. With such low snow levels possible, this upcoming storm system could be deadly for unprepared motorists, campers or hikers.”
KHTS will be on top this storm as it happens, reporting weather advisories, freeway closures and alternate routes.
