LOS ANGELES (AP) — Many of California’s mountains are sporting new coats of snow, much of it down to low elevations, from the first of two cold weather systems predicted for the state this week.
A winter storm warning remains in effect Tuesday for the ranges east of Los Angeles and south through the interior of San Diego County.
A winter weather advisory is also still in effect for the Sierra Nevada from around Yosemite southward. The Mammoth Mountain resort in the Eastern Sierra says it received 6 inches to 8 inches of snow.
The weather has brought chain controls to many mountain areas, and it’s a snow day for some students.
In terms of rain, Los Angeles County was a big winner with a quarter-inch to a half-inch overnight.
