A storm system over southern California will race toward the four

Mountains and Southwest Mountains, dropping to 8000 feet by late
tonight. A few inches of snow will accumulate near 9000 and
several inches near 10000 feet. Across the West Central Mountains
the snow level will drop to 7000 feet, with accumulations of a few
inches possible above 7500 feet.

Slippery and slushy road conditions will be possible in these
