LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Snow has closed a major mountain road in Southern California and cold temperatures are chilling some areas but things will warm up in the next few days.

Sunday's storm brought more than a third of an inch of rain to downtown Los Angeles and three-quarters of an inch or more in some areas. Snow has indefinitely closed the Angeles Forest Highway near L.A.

Morning lows are in the 40s in Los Angeles. The National Weather Service says frost is likely Monday morning in the Antelope Valley.

Deserts and areas of Central California may see sub-freezing weather Monday night.

It will be sunny through Thursday, with highs gradually warming from the 60s to the low 70s.

However, another storm could hit the region beginning Friday, bringing a weekend chance of rain.
