Timeline: When will SoCal see snow, rain this week? When will it end?


There are still a few days of cold rain and snow in the Southern California forecast before forecasts clear for a much brighter and drier weekend.

Here’s what to expect from the storm moving through the Zuidland this week.

Overall, the storm is expected to dump up to 1.5 inches of rain or less in coastal and valley areas, according to the National Weather Service.

This new storm could bring a total of up to two feet of snow at the highest elevations, officials said, which could pose more challenges for residents and officials after days of blocked roads due to snow and ice from the last storm. Officials say the latest storm doesn’t have as much moisture or strength as the previous system, which brought significant rain and snowfall to the region, but it could still cause notable disruption, especially on roads Wednesday morning.

A winter weather advisory is already in effect for most of the region’s mountains, which will be upgraded to a winter storm warning late Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday, when heavier snow, high winds and difficult travel are expected.


  • Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain in the morning. Precipitation is expected to increase later in the day, peaking Tuesday through Wednesday.
  • The winter weather warning for mountain areas goes into effect at 1 p.m., with snow falling overnight in areas 3,000 feet and above.
  • Snow is likely to affect travel on Interstate 5 along the Grapevine.


  • Scattered showers and rain for most of the day and coastal and valley areas, decreasing at night.
  • Snowfall expected in the mountains, with snow levels reaching 450 meters – unusually low elevations where some snow fell last week.
  • Wind gusts in some canyons and mountain areas.
  • Officials warn that travel can be difficult in mountain passes such as Interstate 5 and mountain roads.


  • Mostly sunny in coastal and valley areas.
  • Warming is starting, with temperatures slowly rising over the next few days.
