California shivers ahead of 2 more storm systems

February 19, 2019

LOS ANGELES (AP) — California is cold and dry for the time being, but two weather systems are expected this week.

Freeze warnings and frost advisories were in effect early Tuesday in the Central Valley, the Central Coast, around Los Angeles and down through the interior of Southern California.

A cold system is expected on Wednesday but isn’t expected to bring much rain or snowfall.

But the Los Angeles-area weather office says Thursday looks to be an interesting day.

A very cold system from the Canadian interior is predicted to move into the state from Nevada, meaning the air mass won’t be modified by passage over relatively warm ocean waters.

Forecasters say snow levels around Southern California could fall as low as 1,500 feet (457 meters) almost anywhere, except along the coast.
