...Winter Weather Advisory for the interior mountains of Los
   Angeles and Ventura counties until 10 am PST Thursday...

.An upper level trough of low pressure moving through the
region will bring increasing moisture across the north slopes
of the mountains tonight into early Thursday morning, likely
bringing snow showers to the advisory area. As colder air
filters in overnight, wet roadways will likely turn icy in
some locations. Northwest to north winds will also increase
tonight, strongest through the Interstate 5 corridor where
gusts around 55 mph are expected. Travel across Interstate
5 near the Grapevine could become dangerous tonight due to
the potential combination of accumulating snow, ice, and
strong winds.
