Southern California turns dry, windy after rain and snow
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California’s weather is turning dry and windy with areas of chill in the aftermath of a Christmas dousing of rain and some mountain snow.
The National Weather Service says high pressure will dominate for several days and the clear skies and cold, dry air mass will allow overnight temperatures to drop quickly in wind-sheltered areas.
The interior and coldest valleys will see freezing or near-freezing temperatures.
A moderate Santa Ana wind is predicted to develop on Friday.
Many areas saw rainfall on Tuesday and the National Weather Service reported 2 inches (50.8 millimeters) of snow at Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernardino Mountains. The Big Bear Mountain Resort to the east reported 5 inches (127 millimeters) of snow.
